Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan (SAH'-jihn) toured the front lines in the war against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant today. He downplayed the significance of last week's major offensive and managing expectations on what Canada's rebooted training mission will look like. Sajjan says an end-date to Canada's air combat mission is still being negotiated with the USLed coalition and the March 31st deadline -- set by the Harper government -- is an arbitrary date. (That means airstrikes could end sooner, or carry on longer, depending on discussions with the USLed coalition.)
