WJR PARTICIPATES IN TELECONFERENCE WITH MINISTER OF DEFENSE JASON KENNY ON CANADA'S EXTENSION OF MISSION AGAINST ISIL-
 
 
 
 
THIS JIHADI GRUOP IS THREAT TO MIDDLE EAST STABILITY, AFFECTS ISRAEL-
 
 
 
 
LIBERAL PARTY LEADER JUSTIN TRUDEAU RESPONDS  TO WJR INQUIRY RE ISIL-OPPOSES EXPANSION OF MISSION
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Canada has "the responsibility to downgrade" ISIL's capabilities,"
 
Canada's Minister of Defense Jason Kenney told media outlets including 
 
the Winnipeg Jewish Review which participated in a teleconference
 
for media with Kenney on March 25.
 
Kenney spoke in anticipation of the Harper government 's intention
 
to bring forward a motion in the House of Commons seeking support 
 
for the Government’s decision to extend and expand Canada’s
 
military contribution to the global fight against the
 
 so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),
 
with the goal of significantly degrading the capabilities of ISIL. 
 
 
As Kenney outlined, the motion would extend Canada's deployment by one year until the end of March, 2016, (The motion has since passed Parliament with a vote of 149 to 142 in favour of extending the mission.)
 
 
Kenney noted that "ISIL  would have taken enormous amounts of territory  in Syria and Iraq  had it been left unchecked" including controlling oil. "  ISIL has "sought to obliterate ethnic minorities, and "engaged in mass rape", forcing "Yazdis girls and women into sexual slavery." 
 
 
 
Kenny said
