Ms. Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Île, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, Quebeckers expect the government at least to maintain existing jobs. But the Minister of Natural Resources is refusing to invite Shell to negotiate seriously with potential buyers. As for Davie Shipyards, the Conservative member for Lévis—Bellechasse is scaring creditors instead of guaranteeing that this company will have access to government contracts.

How can this government claim to be creating jobs in Quebec when the Shell and Davie Shipyards cases prove it—

Ms. Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Île, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association is calling on the Minister of Foreign Affairs to meet his legal obligations in the case of Nathalie Morin, the young woman being held in Saudi Arabia with her children. Under its international obligations, the Government of Canada cannot ignore or be a party to violations of someone's rights.

Will the Minister of Foreign Affairs take advantage of Saudi King Abdallah's presence at the G20 summit to finally demand that Nathalie Morin and her children be returned to Canada?

Ms. Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Île, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, the United Nations Security Council has passed a resolution to impose sanctions on Iran over its refusal to respect the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Does Canada—which is campaigning for a seat on the Security Council—intend to demand that Iran comply with that resolution?

Ms. Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Île, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, we are delighted that the government supports the Security Council's decision. However, should it not also support resolutions 1850 and 1860, which call for the regular flow of humanitarian aid and food into Gaza?

We do not understand how the government can support the resolution concerning Iran, yet dodge the issue when the resolutions have to do with to Israel.

Does the Conservative policy consist of supporting the Security Council's resolutions when it suits them and ignoring the others?

Ms. Francine Lalonde (La Pointe-de-l'Île, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, but will it be international? That is twice now that the government has refused to answer.

Will the government demand that the two UN Security Council resolutions—1850 and 1860—on humanitarian aid to Gaza be respected by Israel?

How can Canada hope to sit on the UN Security Council when it is unable to clearly support resolutions that are adopted there?
