On October 3rd, Prime Minister Stephen Harper laid out his case in the House of Commons for a Canadian combat mission in the Middle East, promising a fixed six-month window for airstrikes in Iraq -- and possibly Syria -- with no ground combat. (On October 7th, after two days of debate, the Conservatives used their majority in the House to pass the controversial motion, clearing the way for Canadian jets to embark on airstrikes against the militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Canada committed six CF-18s, two CP-140 Auroras and a C-150 refueling aircraft.)
