OTTAWA - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is leaving open the question of whether Canada's military could get involved in the volatile situation in Syria.

With reports emerging that France could intervene in Syria over fears the Bashar al-Assad regime is loading missiles with chemical warheads, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae asked Baird whether Canada might be part of any international response.

The minister was non-committal.
