Former Canadian ambassador to Afghanistan Arif Lalani warned last week that Canadians should not expect the situation in Kandahar to "be fixed" by the time Canada's current mission ends in 2011, CTV reported. "I think it will look pretty much as it does now, but the key difference will be that Afghan institutions, Afghan army and police and government will actually be in charge and in the lead," he said, adding Canada has to continue doing what it is doing there.
