Harper announces plan to send CF-18s to bomb ISIS in Iraq | National Post
OTTAWA — Canada is poised to go to war in Iraq, as Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced plans in Parliament today to send CF-18 fighter jets for up to six months to battle Islamic extremists.
In his address to the House of Commons, Harper outlined the rationale for why Canada needs to join other countries in a combat mission against ISIS.

Despite the proposed time limit and lack of ground troops, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said the party will not support the mission.
"The Liberal Party of Canada can not and will not support this prime minister's motion to go to war in Iraq," he said.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair didn't explicitly rule out supporting it, but said he hopes for a fuller debate on Monday, the day scheduled for debate, and said humanitarian aid and diplomatic measures should come before a military assault.
