Debates of the Senate (Hansard)

3rd Session, 40th Parliament,
Volume 147, Issue 71

Tuesday, November 30, 2010
The Honourable Noël A. Kinsella, Speaker

Foreign Affairs

Sudan—Haiti—Deployment of Canadian Forces

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: Honourable senators, my question is for the leader of the government. When I was an envoy to Sudan, there were 100 members of the armed forces there. Currently, how many men and women do we have working in Sudan? How many police officers do we have helping with rape investigations?

I would ask the leader to tell honourable senators what the Task Force Sudan is doing, how much money is dedicated to the work of the Task Force Sudan, and what work will be done to help women in Southern Sudan who will suffer when the referendum results are released.

Senator LeBreton: Honourable senators, I will be happy to refer Senator Jaffer’s questions to Foreign Affairs to bring her up to date on Canada’s work in Sudan.
