In recent days, the usual pundit-hawks of Canadian politics have reached a fever pitch in their support of Harper's plan for Canada to participate in the new US-led bombing of Iraq.

The frenzy of debate surrounding Canada's role in the military campaign against ISIS is missing one key ingredient: Ricochet has learned that our troops are already involved in the war effort, and will continue to be regardless of the decision made by Parliament.
Bullet #1048: Cacouna, Couillard and the Ties that Bind
by Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois | October 17, 2014
It's an evening like any other. The first item on the Téléjournal is about the controversial Cacouna oil port project. The journalist speaks to citizens in favour of and opposed to the project.

On Monday October 20, join with Ottawa residents for a community picket of the Kanata Canada Post depot. All are welcome. Brings placards and signs.
