Harper in Haiti

Prime Minister Stephen Harper this week is seeing first-hand the results of the work Canadian troops have been delivering in earthquake-shattered Haiti. Mr. Harper visited the medical clinic operated by Canada's Disaster Assistance Response team, where he met with some patients, the Canadian Press reported. In a speech to Canadian soldiers on the ground, he also stressed the country's efforts to help Haiti. "Everyone saw that Canada has the equipment, the know-how, the capacity, and the personnel to intervene quickly and efficiently," he said, referring specifically to Canada's fleet of C-17 transport planes which he said helped get supplies and troops quickly to Haiti.
