Defence Minister Jason Kenney is offering his condolences to the family of a Canadian special forces soldier killed in Iraq. Sergeant Andrew Joseph Doiron was killed Friday and three other Canadians were wounded in a friendly fire incident. Kenney says Doiron's death won't deter Canada from continuing joining the fight against Islamic State militants. (The military says Doiron and the other Canadians were involved in training local forces when they were mistakenly fired upon by Kurdish fighters.)
