Canadian PM Bolsters Troops in Afghanistan

Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Canadian troops in Afghanistan that Canada Will Not Cut and Run.

"Of course, standing up for these core Canadian values may not always be easy at times. It’s never easy for the men and women on the front lines. And there may be some who want to cut and run. But cutting and running is not your way. It’s not my way. And it’s not the Canadian way."

Despite critics back home in Canada, PM Harper said, “We don’t make a commitment and then run away at the first sign of trouble. We don’t and we will not, as long as I’m leading this country.”

Refreshing words from new Canadian leadership.
