Shouldn’t Canada Be In Darfur...NOW?

The Government and the rebels in Sudan's Darfur are having trouble meeting their ceasefire agreement leading to increased violence and human rights abuses that have already killed more than 180,000 people so far. CBC reports the following;

'A separate report released Tuesday by Amnesty International said Darfur and similar crises around the world are being ignored as nations such as the United States concentrate on the so-called war against terrorism.'

"Governments collectively and individually paralyzed international institutions and squandered public resources in pursuit of narrow security interests, sacrificed principles in the name of the 'war on terror' and turned a blind eye to massive human rights abuses," the secretary-general of Amnesty International, Irene Khan, said in a statement linked to the report.

LFP asks, where's Canada? This should be a United Nations supported real peace keeping opportunity and an emergency priority. Afghanistan and Iraq is a USA led coalition against terrorism.
