"The children I met in Iraq need our help. We should be smart in how we deliver," Dewar says.
Up now, Treasury Board president Tony Clement. He asks why Canada can't do both, answer the call and be there with the CF in the air, and offer humanitarian aid.
Dewar says no one has asked Canada for airstrikes. "They've asked us to save lives." Canada could already be on the ground with such aid, he says.
Up again is Green Party Leader Elizabeth May. She stresses that it should be clear that no one in the House thinks Canada should do nothing.
May, while being heckled, asks if a Canadian peacekeeping force could be put together to help protect civilians, including those in refugee camps.
Dewar appreciates the question, but says "I don't think we're there yet."
Up now for the first time is NDP MP Pierre Nantel.
Nantel asks about the UN resolution that the government cites as authorization for the mission. Dewar says again that the UN resolution covers dealing with homegrown fighters.
NDP defence critic Jack Harris is back up.
Harris says the government motion does not respond to the direct ask that Canada got from the government of Iraq.
The NDP's proposed amendment to the government's motion would put Canada on par with Germany, Italy and other allies: helping with military equipment and humanitarian aid, Harris says.
A harsh Iraq winter is coming, and a "significant effort" could save lives: shelter, food, medical supplies, etc. are badly needed, Harris says.
"We want to see a long-term solution," Harris says. Save lives immediately, and help peshmerga and others deal with threat on the ground.
Harris says the NDP amendment to the motion will help "save lives now."
Kenney responds that Harris's speech "goes to the heart of the incoherence of the NDP's position." Canada already providing humanitarian assistance, and will contribute more, he says.
Women are being held as sex slaves, Kenney says. Canada can't send lawyers to stop the force that causes this, he says. Harris responds by saying "moral outrage is not a strategy."
Up now, Liberal defence critic Joyce Murray asks NDP whether the party's amendment includes support for a broad range of non-combat military operations.
Harris says the NDP supports the delivery of materiel and ammunition, as well as a military mission to support humanitarian efforts. The party does not support a combat mission.
Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney is up for the first time.
Blaney says he's "disappointed" with the positions taken by the NDP and the Liberals. Says they took their positions before hearing the prime minister table the motion on Friday.
For the first time, NDP MP Alain Giguere is up. He is speaking to the plight of some 1.5 million refugees. He also asks about the efficacy of airstrikes.
Up for the first time, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Lynne Yelich speaks for Iraq's "innocent civilians who stand in the crosshairs."
Yelich also pays tribute to British aid worker Alan Henning, who was recently murdered by Islamic State militants.
Approximately 43 per cent of displaced Iraqis are living in inappropriate housing, including schools, churches and abandoned buildings, Yelich says.
For most Canadians, the situation in Iraq is unimaginable, Yelich says. Few Canadians can imagine having to abandon their homes and leave all of their possessions behind, she says.
Canadians believe that the federal government's actions in Iraq "are a direct reflection of their values," Yelich says.
Paul Dewar is back up, and once again thanks the government for its pledge this morning of $10 million to help victims of sexual violence, including $5 million to prosecute perpetrators.
Dewar also notes that he was ridiculed by Employment Minister Jason Kenney for suggesting that Canada "send lawyers" to help with the humanitarian situation in Iraq. The government's pledge this morning includes just that, help with prosecutions.
Up for the first time is Liberal MP Adam Vaughan. He asks about refugee arrivals to Canada. If the government is so concerned about refugees, why are they denied some services when they arrive in Canada? Yelich questions whether that is relevant to the current debate.
Up again is Erin O'Toole, Parliamentary Secretary for International Trade. O'Toole asks Yelich about the prime minister's comment that providing security to humanitarian aid to get through is not an "either/or" matter. Yelich says military action indeed may include security for humanitarian aid.
Up again is NDP International Development critic Helene Laverdiere, who speaks to the potential consequences of airstrikes. Population density increases risk of civilian casualties, for example, she says.
"The use of force is more likely to fuel the extremism underpinning the conflict," Laverdiere says. If the government insists on going ahead with the mission, it should report regularly to Parliament on the progress, she says.
Up again is Conservative MP Laurie Hawn. What is the NDP solution to stopping ISIS from beheading women and children tomorrow? he asks. Need to act to stop killings so can act on some of the long-term solutions, he says.
Laverdiere says we need to start on those long-term solutions tomorrow. Doctors have a saying, she says: First, do no harm. Failing to act on humanitarian emergency does harm, she says.
