“The Libya Question” | Thursday, September 22, Ottawa

Canada’s military mission has been approved until October, but many questions remain unanswered about the UN’s goals, NATO’s operations, and the prospects for peace in Libya. Should Canada’s military mission continue, change, or cease altogether?
