Canada to boost non-military role in Iraq

Canadian Press

Savannah, Ga. — Canada will answer U.S. President George W. Bush's appeal to world leaders for more help in Iraq, a senior Canadian official said Wednesday.

While the U.S. push was meeting with mixed results at the annual G-8 summit being held on the exclusive Sea Island resort off Georgia's coast, the official said Canada is willing to boost its non-military role.

"We'll almost certainly be increasing our involvement" in establishing democratic institutions like courts and police, as well as building schools and hospitals, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"If what emerges is a more secure environment, that will allow us to do more."

why don't we help create that 'secure environment'?
