I just finished listening to General Hillier on Rex Murphy’s Cross Country Checkup. Regardless of one’s views on the appropriateness of the Afghanistan mission, it would be hard to find a more passionate and eloquent supporter of the men and women who we put in harm’s way. Well done, General Hillier.
But it is of more than passing interest that it was General Hillier and not Junior MacKay talking to Canadians about the mission and our troops. Where is our National Defence Minister anyway?
