What has become clear is that the Prime Minister’s intent sending Canada on to war in Iraq and it’s up to him to make a case for it. We are extremely disappointed with the secrecy and the lack of forthrightness that has characterized this governments answers to this very, very serious issue and we certainly hope that in the coming days and week we get a lot more clearer information.
Over the past week I have had conversations with every single former leader of the Liberal party of Canada including the interim one as I have had conversations with experts from all sorts of different fields in Canada and around the world, as I have excellent conversations with our caucus both this morning and throughout the week and there is an approach that the liberal party is taking that will be fundamentally thoughtful and responsible about how best to respond, how best Canada can respond to the issues going on in the Middle East.
It is his job to make the case for that, and so far failed in any level of openness, transparency or frankness in his actual approach.
The conversations between leader and the former leader of the Liberal party of Canada are between us but certainly he was as always as were all former leaders very helpful in bringing forward their perspective and their strength for more information you’re going to have to ask to talk to them.
I’m not going to comment on speculation by a minister in the conservative government I’m going to look at what the actual level of transparency and accountability this government is putting forward. The Prime Minister seems intent on taking us into a war in Iraq. It is his job to make the case for that, and so far failed in any level of openness, transparency or frankness in his actual approach.
