Many members of the Canadian public are aware and upset at the state of the Afghanistan mission. Many do not understand the controversies surrounding the mission due to lack of reliable information.

It is a crass political tactic to suggest that those of us who do not support the mission are somehow unpatriotic or do not support our brave troops. This is just not true.

Many of us feel that Canada's troops are better suited to a mission more in keeping with Canada's reputation as a peacekeeper, negotiator, and rebuilder.

To be clear on the Green Party's stance on this issue, see this press release from April 2007.
