Statement made on 22 June 2011 by Senator Elizabeth Hubley

Hon Elizabeth Hubley:

Honourable senators, my question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate.

Honourable senators, in the past, the Leader of the Government has indicated to this chamber that Canada supports the total ban on all cluster munitions as defined in the United Nations Convention on Cluster Munitions and recognizes that cluster munitions are unreliable and cause unacceptable and catastrophic harm in theatres of conflict, not only to combatants but also to civilians.

On several separate occasions over the past two and a half years, I have stood in this chamber to ask when Canada will ratify the UN Convention on Cluster Munitions. Each time the leader has indicated it will be soon.

I ask the leader again if she can give an indication about when the Government of Canada will ratify this convention.
