Tom Mulcair says, with New Democrats in charge, he would immediately order the Canadian military to halt the bombing campaign against the Islamic State. He would also pull special forces trainers out of the region, where they have been instructing Kurdish peshmerga fighters. Reaction to Mulcair's statement in the Kurdish community was swift. Yusuf Celik, vice president of the Kurdish Youth Association of Canada, says the NDP were happy to capitalize on the death of three-year-old Alan Kurdi to make their point on Syrian refugees.
