“That this Chamber condemns the government’s decision to unilaterally extend the Canadian mission in Afghanistan until 2014, which breaks two promises to the people, including the one made in this Chamber May 10 2006 and reiterated in the Speech from the Throne of 2007 to submit all military deployments to a vote by Parliament, and the one made January 6 2010 to turn the mission in Afghanistan into a strictly civilian mission after 2011, with no military presence other than that necessary for the protection of the embassy.”
