Published: Wednesday, 08/16/2006 12:00 am EDT

Canada should play a leading role in reconstruction efforts in Lebanon, Liberal leadership candidate Michael Ignatieff (above) said last weekend. "Canada is a country that people listen to," Mr. Ignatieff said. "We have a long tradition of engagement in the Middle East." In a speech to supporters at a Lebanese centre in Halifax, Mr. Ignatieff reiterated that Canada is right to support Israel's right to defend itself, and that the ceasefire's success will depend largely on the militant group Hezbollah.
