I have been a Member of Parliament for 19 years, and rarely have I been more disturbed than by what I have heard from the Liberal government today.
The Conservatives put forward a motion recognizing that the indigenous ethnic and religious minorities of Mesopotamia are the victims of an ongoing genocide at the hands of ISIS, a barbaric terrorist organization.
This is not a matter for debate — ISIS brags proudly that it is engaged in genocide. We are simply calling on the Government of Canada to do what the Government of the United States has done, and recognize this genocide.
Instead, the Liberals are denying our motion, because its recognition would compel the government morally to engage in the international mission against ISIS.
We must urge the Liberals to take action. Please take a moment and sign my petition calling on the government to recognize the ISIS genocide.
