Justin Trudeau has said Canada will play a role when it comes to the battle against ISIS, but it remains unclear what that will be. He also says that Canadians voted to bring the bombing mission on ISIS to an end.
Should Trudeau stick with his campaign promise of military withdrawal? Or have circumstances changed in light of the terror attacks on France?
As well, one of the terrorists in Friday’s terror attacks in Paris is said to have possessed a false passport and was posing as a Syrian refugee. Twenty-five year-old Ahmed Almuhamed travelled for over a month from Greece to France pretending to be Syrian. His Syrian passport was found on the body of one of the suicide bombers. Should Prime Minister Trudeau stick to his election pledge of 25,000 refugees by year’s end? Or does the possible risk to Canadian safety outweigh any humanitarian duty?
