Canada has a small contingent in Congo. Too busy in Afghanistan to send more.

BTW, word from the ground in Congo can be summed up as:

"Really!?! This is making the news this time! It's about time!! But it is really more of the same of what is been going on for the past couple of years!!!"

Good on you Canucks always reliable! Sadly ( Unless I am missing something) all we seem to get from many of the big countries is lip service!!

One our guys just received a Canadian medal for getting the Zimbabwe embassy (consulate?) personnel in Congo evacuated to safety while under heavy fire.
I'm sure he did not choose the embassy, he was just doing his job.
