The Canadian government is sending $5 million in additional emergency supplies and humanitarian aid to Iraq.

Canada's assistance package will include shipments of food, medicine, cooking materials, blankets, tents, hygiene kits and other essential supplies to help an estimated 850,000 displaced Iraqis, it said in a statement. Canada will also help repair essential water and sanitation facilities, as well as improve access to information for the country's citizens.

"Canada continues to stand by the people of Iraq in these difficult times and condemns the terrorist actions of ISIS and the killing of innocent civilians," International Development Minister Christian Paradis said in the statement.

Harper has never wasted any money....ever.


Ever swim in his fake lake to impress foreign potential free trade partners.


Look the other way.

Five mil wouldn't even cover the cost of administering the aid never mind the actual supplies and air freight.

I wonder who's in control there, and how these supplies will be dispersed,
and by whom, and I think of Somalia in the '80's as I wonder about this....
