Don't stop helping Afghanistan

The Canada-Afghanistan Solidarity Committee has warned against stopping development in the war-town country after Canadian troops pull out in 2011, reported the Toronto Star. The committee surveyed Afghan Canadians and Afghans of several political and social stripes and concluded that Canada can use its influence to influence the Afghan government on topics it considers crucial. The report was presented last night to a panel in Ottawa that included Afghan Ambassador Jawed Ludin.
