Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada will increase its number of ground troops in Iraq to train local forces as a way of making a bigger military contribution to the coalition fighting Islamic militants. He discussed the plan during a news conference aboard his plane before arriving in Manila for the APEC summit. Trudeau says the number of trainers has yet to be determined. (Trudeau says he's looking forward to a key meeting with US President Barack Obama in Manila because the two have a lot in common on the fight against terrorism and on climate change.)
