Post-2011 Afghanistan plan

The Canadian government has mapped out its plan for a non-combat mission in Afghanistan post-2011, according to a spring 2010 PowerPoint presentation obtained by the Globe and Mail through an Access to Information request from Chief of Defence Staff Walt Natynczyk's office. According to the documents, the government would spend close to $600 million over three years on diplomacy and development to prevent Afghanistan from becoming a "haven for terrorists." The government's new themes would include a focus on children and youth, regional diplomacy, rule of law and human rights and humanitarian assistance.
