In Committee from the House of Commons - National Defence - November 4, 2014


Senior military officials brief the committee on Canada's response to ISIL. Major-General Michael Hood, Rear Admiral Gilles Couturier and Colonel Mark Gendron provide a summary of Operation Impact, the Canadian Forces' contribution to the U.S.-led multinational coalition in Iraq. Canada's contribution includes providing strategic airlift of military supplies, deploying special operations forces to advise and assist Iraqi security forces, and conducting airstrikes. Canadian forces launched their first airstrikes in Iraq a few days before the witnesses' committee appearance. (November 4, 2014)
