Zhanna Nemtsova is the daughter of assassinated politician Boris Nemtsov, who opposed Vladimir Putin. Conservatives are proud to have met with this distinguished group and share their determination to defend human rights.

    Nadiya Savchenko has restarted her hunger strike. Her health is deteriorating, and the Liberals have done next to nothing. The charges against Nadiya are clearly trumped up. This illegal show trial demonstrates the Russian regime's utter contempt for international law, due process and human rights. Rallies are scheduled across Canada this evening, demanding her release.

    The Conservative Party remains highly skeptical about Iran’s intentions regarding its nuclear program. Iran’s past intentions on nuclear proliferation, its continuing state-sponsorship of terror and groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, coupled with its abysmal human rights record raise serious questions about the Liberal’s plan to end sanctions in a rush. This marks the end of Canada’s principled stand against a regime that should not be openly trusted. Iran’s President has stated that he has fooled the West about previous nuclear negotiations. The regime in Tehran has said many things about their nuclear program, but they need to be judged by their actions, not their words. Given the regime’s history of directing and permitting attacks on foreign embassies and threatening ambassadors with assassination, we remain highly concerned about the safety and security of Canadian diplomats should the Liberals reopen an embassy in Tehran.

    Two years ago in Ukraine, the Heavenly Hundred were gunned down on Kyiv's Maidan during the Revolution of Dignity. It was two years ago that President Putin's little green men invaded and occupied Crimea and then Putin illegally annexed it. Today, Russian officials continue to arrest Tatars in Crimea and closed their legislative assembly, their mosques and cultural centres. Russia wants to normalize relations with the Liberal government. Normalization is code for appeasement. Unfortunately, our Prime Minister wants to engage Putin. I remind the government that Crimea is Ukraine, and whether it takes 5 months or 50 years, Canada should never recognize it as Russian territory. Russian soldiers fighting in eastern Ukraine is not interference. It is called an invasion. If Russia wants to avoid its Cold War II, then Russia must get out of Ukraine.

    While the Prime Minister is speaking in the House on the government's motion on the ISIS mission, the defence minister quietly issued a press release saying our CF-18s dropped their last bombs on Monday and were headed home. In his press release, the Minister of National Defence did not even thank or acknowledge the invaluable contributions made by Canada's fighter jets. This comes before the House has even had a chance to vote on the motion.

    The Defence Minister left the impression that the F-35 could be an option to replace our CF-18 fighter jets. In the Liberal platform, it says, “We will not buy the F-35 stealth fighter-bomber.” I will give the minister a chance to explain himself here in the House. Will the F-35 be excluded from the bidding process to replace our CF-18 fighter jets? It is a simple answer, yes or no.

    I understand the incredible risk that our military services, either in the regular or reserved forces, are willing to undertake to protect Canada. Everything that we hold dear in here, our democracy, our freedom of speech, our rights and liberties, are only possible because of the incredible sacrifices made by members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the veterans who came before them.

    For more than a year, our CF-18s have been eliminating ISIS fighting positions and taking out its critical supply lines. Every successful bombing has limited its ability to threaten civilians and has weakened ISIS' capacity. ISIS has now fled to countries like Libya because air strikes have decimated its funding and weapons. ISIS is on the run. Why is the Prime Minister abandoning the fight when our contribution to the air strikes is so invaluable?

    It is shameful that the Prime Minister is making this easier for ISIS by withdrawing Canada's fighter jets. Canada should continue to take the fight directly to ISIS with our CF-18s, not only because it is the right thing to do but because it is working.

    "The Prime Minister has not given Canadians a single good reason why we should stop bombing ISIS with our fighter jets. Matthew Fisher, a senior foreign correspondent, noted that despite diplomatic niceties, the idea that our allies would be happy to see our CF-18s come home is hogwash. General Vance has said that by tripling the number of special operation forces on the ground, it increases the risk. Why is the Prime Minister reducing our capabilities, taking us out of the fight against ISIS, and putting our troops at risk?"

    "We’re still extremely disappointed that we’re not leaving the CF-18s in the fight. We still didn’t receive a single reason why Canada should not continue on in the air combat mission. So, it’s okay to fuel the bombers, and paint targets for the bombers, and find targets, but they never gave reason why Canada had to stop bombing."

    Canada’s withdrawal from the combat mission against #ISIS is a step backward for Canada. Our CF-18’s have launched the 5th most strikes in the coalition and ISIS has lost 25-30% of populated areas previously held, they are having real tangible impacts. ISIS has declared war on Canada, our allies and our shared values. The Liberals have not provided any explanation of how the withdrawal of the CF-18s will help the coalition more effectively able to defeat ISIS. It is paramount that the government stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies to defend and protect the safety and security of Canadians both here and abroad.

    The Liberals have said that they will be announcing their new strategy to combat ISIS next week. They need to start listening to Canadians: “two-thirds of Canadians would like either like to see the bombing campaign continue or even be stepped up”, “ one in two Canadians actually think that if we don't keep doing this, we're going to hurt ourselves on the international stage.”

    Today, I stood in the House of Commons and expressed my concern with the comments made by the Defence Minister yesterday, when he said that we must not repeat the mistakes of the past. Over 40 thousand Canadians served in Afghanistan. 159 gave their lives. Was it a mistake that the hard work of our armed forces enabled millions of children to go to school, including over three million girls? Was it a mistake that we restored the rights of women so that they could work, and have health care? Does the Minister believe that these successes, as we fought the Taliban, were all just a mistake?

    Bezan Calls for Support to Introduce Visa-Free Travel for Ukrainians Ottawa- James Bezan, Member of Parliament for Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman, issued the following statement calling on the Government of Canada to improve access to travel visas for Ukrainian nationals. “The Canadian-Ukrainian relationship extends beyond our history. We are linked through many economic, military and diplomatic agreements. For more than 125 years of subsequent waves of immigration from Ukraine has resulted in immeasurable contributions of Ukrainian-Canadians in the development of Canada.” Bezan said. Bezan elaborated on the previous government’s work with Ukraine, “Our Conservative Government made it a priority to improve the Canada–Ukraine bilateral relationship. We signed and implemented the Youth Mobility Agreement, simplifying and facilitating the process for qualified Canadian and Ukrainian citizens aged 18 to 35, to travel and work in the other country for up to one year.” He added, “In July 2015, we announced the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA), marking an important economic milestone. However, current Canadian temporary resident visa requirements hamper Ukrainian businesses from investing in Canada, while obstructing knowledge transfer and professional exchanges and thereby ultimately undermining the goals of CUFTA.” Canadians are able to travel to Ukraine for 90 days without a visa. The European Union has begun to take steps towards including Ukraine in its visa-free regime and is hopeful that all conditions will be met in 2016. “The abolition of temporary resident visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens will allow the free movement of our citizens between our two nations. It will bring significant investment and exchange of knowledge between Canada and Ukraine and promote tourism,” Bezan concluded. “I encourage all Canadians to sign E-petition 33 to abolish temporary resident visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens entering Canada.” The petition can be signed online at: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-33
