Canada’s new defence minister left the door open Wednesday for Canadian troops to join the U.S. in training Ukrainian forces and for an extension of the combat mission against the Islamic State.
Jason Kenney, while talking to CBC TV highlighted Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s comments in saying that “all options are on the table” when it comes to opposing Russian interference in eastern Ukraine, but was more specific on the issue of training.
He said: “if there is consensus that we could play a role in terms of training, we would be open to doing so, but no decisions have been taken.”
The decision to go to war in Canada is the exclusive domain of the federal cabinet, but the Conservatives have made it practise to consult the House of Commons.
