David Akin reminds us:
A Canadian prime minister determines that the activities of terrorists operating in a Muslim nation far from Canada’s shores is such a threat to Canada’s security, that he dispatches Canadian Forces on a combat mission. There is no debate or discussion in Parliament let alone a vote. There seems not to have even been a full cabinet discussion before the prime minister makes his decision. Simply a request from an American president.
That was all it took for Jean Chrétien to to begin what would become Canada’s decade-long war against terrorism in Afghanistan. …
I’ve heard it said that Jean Chretien is supplying Justin Trudeau with backroom advice. Could that be true?
