The Canadian government is funding an independent organization to investigate war crimes in Syria and Iraq, joining an international effort to build criminal cases against Islamic State leaders even while the regional conflict is ongoing.
Ottawa will provide $1.2-million over a one-year period to support “accountability and transitional justice activities” in both countries, a government spokeswoman said. The new funding will see Canada join Britain, Denmark, Germany and others in backing ongoing war-crimes investigations in the region.
I understand that our government throws out 1.2 million with their pocket lint each day but a million here and a million there and ya know, it adds up.
Maybe I’ll tweet Steve and ask if he can front me some bucks, work has been slow of late and the mortgage payment is due.
