0

OTTAWA: Canadian lawmakers voted on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) to join the international coalition launching air strikes on the Islamic State group in Iraq. Parliamentarians led by Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper carried the vote, 157 to 134, in favor of the six-month mission. Both the opposition New Democrats and Liberals voted against it, saying they fear the mission could become a quagmire.
