Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made the decision to expand the number of troops that are in Iraq in order to boost training for better military efforts fighting ISIS.
Right now there are 69 special force trainers and Canada is currently in the midst of bringing air combat to an end by pulling CF-18 fighter jets that are part of a mission with the U.S. in Syria and Iraq.
Trudeau revealed the plan during a news conference while aboard a Canadian Forces plane just a few hours before landing in the Philippine capital of Manila, where he’ll be taking part in the Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation summit.
U.S. President Barack Obama will join Prime Minister Trudeau in what should be a decisive bilateral meeting at the summit on Thursday.
