After an anti-climactic non-confidence motion passed in Parliament on Tuesday, 7 October 2014, the Harper Government took Canada back into battle in the Middle East, this time against a new, seemingly invincible enemy known by its acronym ISIS.
To discuss the origins of and the issues raised by the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (also called ISIL, ‘Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant’ or by its Arabic acronym ‘Daesh’), the politics around that parliamentary vote, and what entering this war means for Canada and Canadian foreign policy, join:
