Are they still going?

Does anyone know if our beloved Prime Minister, Paul Martin, is still planning on sending 150 of our troops to Sudan now that David Kilgour has voted against the budget? Does anybody think he will follow through with the deployment? I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be too fussy about my son or daughter being put in harms way, with a chance of being killed, all because Paul Martin tried to buy off an independent MP to remain in power.

I would support sending troops to the region for the right reasons, but what Mr. Martin is doing is not for the right reasons. A troop deployment would have made sense a year or more ago, but most of the damage to the population of the Darfur region has been done. When the region needed action from Canada and the international community the most, they did nothing to stop the genocide. How does Paul Martin sleep at night?
