Do they wish to weaken support for the mission?

The Bloc Québécois and the NDP voted against the motion.
All eyes, however, were on the Liberal benches as 20 MPs were absent from what both the government and the Liberals labelled an "historic" decision.
Toronto-area MPs who skipped the vote included Joe Volpe (Eglinton-Lawrence), Mario Silva (Davenport), Bonnie Brown (Oakville), Ruby Dhalla (Brampton-Springdale), who was sick, and Omar Alghabra (Mississauga-Erindale), who had an engagement in his riding.
Dhalla and Alghabra told the Star last night they would have supported the government motion. Party officials could not account for the other missing MPs.
