    Earlier today, our Special Operations Forces and CF-18 fighter jet pilots, had to fight off attacks by ISIS against Kurdish Peshmerga positions. I am very proud of the brave men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces. I salute their bravery in fighting against jihadi terrorism and atrocities by ISIS. This is the very reason why our CF-18 jets have to stay in the fight agains ISIS. The have "helped destroy the enemy" and "saved lives" in the Kurdistan region. I find it shameful that Defence Minister Sajjan failed to even mention our CF-18 pilots for their great efforts in providing air support to Canada's Special Operations Forces and Kurdish Peshmerga allies while they fought off ISIS. Are the Liberals so politically insecure that they can't even give credit where credit is due? Just because they want to withdraw our fighter jets, the Liberals should at least have the decency to thank our pilots for a job well done. http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?mthd=index&crtr.page=1&nid=1025369

    Global Affairs Minister, Stéphane Dion’s response in QP today was disrespectful to the men and women of the RCAF. By saying that the CF-18’s contribution to the international coalition’s air bombing campaign is not making ‘a real difference’ is minimalizing the efforts of our pilots and crew members. Canada’s CF-18’s have strategically struck ISIS fighting positions, weapon caches, training facilities, IED factories, critical infrastructure, and command centres. These strikes have been applauded and welcomed by our international allies. Contrary to the Global Affairs Minster, our Conservative caucus recognizes and appreciates the significant efforts and sacrifices made by our troops. We know that Canada’s airstrikes are making a real difference in the fight against ISIS. We continue to call on the Liberal government to reconsider their policy to remove the CF-18’s from the international coalition. https://twitter.com/MacleansMag/status/673953883840901120

    Canada Must Stand Shoulder-To-Shoulder With France Canada has a responsibility to stand with France, our NATO ally, in that country’s ramped-up military response to the ISIS threat. This morning Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with French President Francois Hollande in Paris. I have grave concern with the Liberal government’s ill-advised plan to withdraw Canada’s six CF-18 fighter jets from the battle with ISIS. Since the horrific terrorist attacks on November 13, President Hollande has been meeting with world leaders, requesting a stronger military response from allies in the fight against ISIS. Our NATO allies including Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States have all committed to increase assets to the air campaign in support of France. Canada, however, has done the opposite. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks and President Hollande characterized it as an “act of war organized at a distance” by a “horde of murderers”. President Hollande has pledged to defeat ISIS and is working at expanding the coalition fighting the terrorist group, stating, “France will do everything to destroy the army of fanatics who committed these crimes, that she will act tirelessly to protect her children.” Did Prime Minister Trudeau tell President Hollande that Canada will be ratcheting down our support to one of our greatest allies and friends, and that we will be stepping back from our historic role of standing alongside France as she fights to protect her citizens? Following their meeting this morning, President Hollande said "Terrorism is a threat against every country in the world. We have to unite our forces against this scourage." Canada must stand shoulder-to-shoulder with France. Prime Minister Trudeau has not yet explained how withdrawing Canada’s CF-18s from the air combat mission will help our coalition partners defeat ISIS. None of our coalition allies asked us to leave the air combat mission. The Kurdish regional government has said that they want our CF-18s to stay since they have helped in stopping ISIS and saving lives in the area. Falah Mustafa Bakir, Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Kurdistan Regional Government prefers if Canada continues air strikes in Iraq and Syria saying, “they have helped us a great deal. They have helped save lives. They have helped destroy the enemy. The Leader of the Official Opposition, the Honourable Rona Ambrose, has said that the Conservative Party supports leaving Canada’s fighter jets in the air combat mission and that the Liberal Government must change course. Canada must step up and answer France’s call for help, not step back. We need a more robust response, and that includes leaving the CF-18s in the fight against ISIS. The brave members of the Canadian Armed Forces always stand ready to do our share of the heavy lifting.

    CONSERVATIVES CALL ON GOVERNMENT TO HONOUR DAVIE DEAL

    I am grateful to be appointed to the Conservative Shadow Cabinet by the Leader of the Official Opposition, Rona Ambrose. It is truly an honour to be asked to serve as the Conservative defence critic and to be part of such a dynamic team. I am looking forward to working alongside Pierre Paul-Hus, MP for Charlesbourg-Haute-Saint-Charles who enjoyed a distinguished 22 year career in the Canadian Armed Forces. He will serve as Critic for National Defence (Associate). I am proud of our Conservative record and the work we have done in support of the Canadian Armed Forces. Canada has a long and proud military history. When possible, we have brought peace to war torn areas. And at times of war, we have stood shoulder to shoulder with our allies and friends. There is no doubt that at this point in time, we need to be standing with our allies in the war against ISIS. The horrific attacks in Paris and Beirut, and the bombing of a Russian airliner speaks to the fact that the reach of ISIS goes well beyond Iraq and Syria. Canada and our allies must do everything possible to stop ISIS from carrying out their barbaric jihadist terrorism and establishing their caliphate. Ms. Ambrose has said we are prepared to work with the Liberal government when it comes to Canada's national defence efforts. Canada's involvement in the allied air combat mission should be maintained, allowing the Royal Canadian Air Force to provide air support to Iraqi and Peshmerga Security Forces as they carry out the ground war against ISIS. The participation of Canada's CF-18 fighter jets have been very significant, destroying ISIS fighting positions, weapon caches and armourments. We are asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to follow the leadership of our Conservative Party and commit to a debate and vote on any changes to Canada's military mission against ISIS. Following the Paris attacks, we will also support a more robust training mission by our Special Operations Forces. Despite the recent assurances by Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan that Canadians should not fear ISIS, many Canadians are concerned. Let us never forget that ISIS inspired the terrorist attacks last year here at home in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu and Ottawa, claiming the lives of Canadian soldiers, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo. It is imperative that the Liberal Government face the new reality and not resort to political expediency to implement campaign promises that are no longer relevant.

    "I am very concerned that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is dogmatically sticking to his campaign promise to fast track the acceptance of at least 25,000 refugees from Syria before the end of this year. This is in spite of the fact that ISIS terrorists have now orchestrated attacks in Paris, Beirut and downed a Russian airliner. It is reported at least one jihadi terrorist in Paris posed as a Syrian refugee. "Canadians are extremely concerned about their safety and are expressing their desire to ensure that security screening of refugees is not compromised for the sake of political idealogy. The Liberal government must realize that the ground has shifted since the election. The tactics being employed by ISIS and other terrorist organizations must inform the government policy on how to cautiously implement the acceptance of Syrian refugees. "It is logistically impossible to properly identify, screen, transport and settle 25,000 refugees to Canada over the next 6 weeks. I urge the Trudeau government to rethink their flawed refugee policy, to slow down, and implement a refugee program that will still embrace Canadian compassion while improving public safety. "Political expediency should not trump national security. Political idealogy should not circumvent pragmatic policy development. Campaign promises should not over-ride logistical realities. The safety and security of Canadians must be paramount in government decisions."

    ON REMEMBRANCE DAY We have many things to be thankful for in Canada. We get to live in the best country in the world. In Canada we have freedom; freedom to choose where we live; freedom to choose our career; freedom to choose our government; freedom to worship how we see fit; freedom to express ourselves without fear of prosecution; freedom to just be ourselves. Freedoms and choices that we all too often take for granted and forget about the incredible sacrifice made by the brave men and women who have served, are serving today in the Canadian Armed Forces. We have these choices today because of the courage and sacrifice of those brave Canadian men and women who came before us , those who took up the fight against enemies of freedom and the forces of tyranny and oppression. We are thankful to those brave men and women who have risked all, and continue to risk their lives to protect our values and the Canadian way of life. This year we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the writing of In Flanders Fields and the Second Battle of Ypres. This iconic poem was written on May 3, 1915 by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae during the Second Battle of Ypres - the first time gas was used in modern warfare. In September 1914, McCrae volunteered to fight in the First World War. McCrae deployed overseas as with Canada's first contingent as the second-in-command and brigade surgeon of Morrison's 1st Brigade, Canadian Field Artillery. As brigade-surgeon he attended to hundreds of wounded and dying Canadian soldiers. Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae - gunner, doctor, and poet - was moved to write In Flanders Fields on May 3, 1915 after a friend was killed in the midst of the Second Battle of Ypres, in Belgium. The poem was published in England's Punchmagazine on December 8, that same year. In Flanders Fields went on to symbolize the sacrifices of all who were fighting in the First World War and later, became the reflection of remembrance for all wars. The poppy eventually became a symbol at the centre of post-war commemoration in many Allied countries. Today, In Flanders Fieldscontinues to be a part of Remembrance Day ceremonies in Canada and other countries throughout the world. Millions of Canadians wear the bright red poppy to remember and honour the many thousands of their fellow Canadians who lost their lives during war. All veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten for their courage and valour. We remember them today and pledge to remember for all time. Lest we forget.

    Although the election results last night were not what I had hoped for, I have much to be thankful for this morning. I am thankful and humbled by everyone who voted last night in our riding and allowed me to continue on as their MP. It is truly an honour to represent the great people of Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman. I am thankful and amazed by our incredible campaign team and volunteers who worked so hard during this long campaign. Our team was dedicated and committed to the Conservative cause. Their work ethic and passion was impressive. I could never do this without them and we had a lot of fun along the way. Each and everyone of you are very special and I will never be able to thank you enough. I am thankful for the love and support of my family. My daughters have stood by me for the past 11 years and through five elections. Cortney and Taylor have always helped in every way they can. For Cassidy, this was a special election. Not only was it the first time Cassidy was able to vote, but she worked by my side everyday of this election; knocking doors, pounding the pavement and working the phones. She inspired me and everyone else who saw her dedication. To Cortney, Taylor and Cassidy - I love you more than love. I am thankful and deeply in love with Kelly. We are a team in everything we do. She campaigned with me every day. She drove over 20,000 kms and knocked thousands of doors. She encouraged, advised, critiqued and nurtured. And she did it with good humour, poise, beauty and grace. I could never do this without her love and support. Finally, I am thankful to have been part of the Conservative government, and for the opportunity of serving with Prime Minister Stephen Harper over the past decade. I am proud of our record and all that we accomplished. Canada is the best country in the world.

    Today is Election Day! Polling stations are already open and will stay open until 8:30 this evening. Remember to take your driver's license to vote or bring two other pieces of identification. It has been an honour to be your Member of Parliament and part of a Conservative government that has made the economy our number one priority. This election is about the economy. The Liberals aren't ready to manage Canada's economy and the NDP can't be trusted with our fragile economy. Only Conservatives will protect the economy. We have a low tax plan for jobs and growth, while keeping the budget balanced. Cast your ballot today and please vote Conservative.
