IN THE HOUSE: Question to the Minister of National Defence

Ballistic Missile Defence

Mr. Randall Garrison (Esquimalt - Saanich - Sooke, NDP): Mr. Speaker, last week Candians were alarmed to discover that the Liberals' defence review included consideration of privatizing search and rescue. Now we have learned the Liberals are also reconsidering Canada's participation in the Star Wars missle defence scheme.

I have a bad feeling about this. Canadians thought this debate was put to rest more than a decade ago. Would the Minister tell the House, and this really is a yes or no question, are the Liberals reconsidering Canada's participation in this dangerous U.S. missile defence scheme?
