Krayden: Child soldiers another reason Trudeau must forget about Mali peacekeeping mission

The Canadian Armed Forces has its own way of indicating disapproval or disavowal of a government policy. As a servant of its political masters, Canada’s military is loathe to make public pronouncements when it disagrees with the government of the day or even to offer off-the-record or deep background assessments to the media.

But it will issue a report. The CAF has done just that by publishing a new doctrine on how deployed personnel should engage child soldiers — just as they surely will if the Trudeau government deploys military personnel to Mali as peacekeepers.
