MPP Randy Hillier’s Son Joins Kurds In Fight Against ISIS

The Afghan War veteran son of a Canadian MP has posted footage of himself with Kurdish fighters after travelling to Iraq to join their fight against the so-called Islamic State terror group.

Dillon Hillier, 26, whose father Randy is a Progressive Conservative member of the Ontario provincial legislature, is one of around half a dozen Canadian veterans understood to have travelled to the region.

Video posted online by the former professional soldier show him putting his training to good use by bandaging a Kurdish fighter who has been shot in the face during a clash with jihadis.
