Canada excluded from defence meeting to discuss ISISJanuary 20, 2016
Canada’s Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan says the country is still active in the fight against terrorism, despite being left out of an anti-ISIS meeting in Paris between global officials in charge of defence. The meeting today will include leaders from the US, the UK, Germany, France and Italy, and relatively smaller countries such as Australia and the Netherlands. However, Canada had not been invited. Conservative defence critic James Bezan said the snub meant that Canada is not being taken seriously, pointing to the Liberals’ promise to pull CF-18 fighter jets in the mission against ISIS. But Sajjan says that “meetings happen all the time”, and that two other upcoming meetings will take place between Canada and allied nations.
