Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay says he believes the four Christian Peacemaker Team members, including two Canadians, who were kidnapped in Iraq on Nov. 26, 2005 are "very much" alive and is optimistic for their safe release. A video released Jan. 28 shows the men alive. Mr. MacKay told Canadian Press that the men's location has changed frequently, and that the Canadian government is "pursuing all means, with our allies, to be helpful and supportive to ensure their safe return and release."
