Justin Trudeau announced Monday that Canada will be halting airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq by February 22. Trudeau explained: “the people terrorized by [ISIS] don’t need our vengeance, they need our help”.
The CF-18 fighter jets will be taken out but two surveillance aircraft and one refuelling plane will stay to help the other countries fight. They will also triple the “train, advise and assist effort” in the region. At the moment, there are 69 special forces trainers. There will also be additional equipment (ammunition, small arms, etc) as well as medical personnel to assist Iraq security forces.
Only 27% of Canadians believe that Justin Trudeau is right, based on a poll sampling 1,503 Canadian adults.
Is Trudeau right in doing this? What to you think is the right approach?
