Canada Pledges Support for "Brave" Iraqis

By John Lee.

The Canadian government has confirmed that they have two cargo planes operational to assist in the transfer of arms and supplies to Iraqi Kurdish forces.

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird (pictured) went as far as to endorse US air strikes against the "brutal" ISIS:

“Canada supports all efforts, including United States supply drops and air strikes, to protect civilians from ISIS terrorists. We continue to stand with those who support the Iraqi people, including the Kurdish Peshmerga soldiers who are bravely fighting this brutal terrorism."

Canada has also pledged $5 million of humanitarian aid to help those displaced by the crisis.
