Last week, a Canadian sniper broke the record for the longest kill in military history. This member of Joint Task Force 2 (a Canadian special forces unit) killed an ISIS fighter in Mosul at a distance of 3,540 meters.
This is great news, but Justin Trudeau's congratulatory reaction reeks of hypocrisy. Upon being elected, Trudeau pledged to withdraw Canada from the combat mission in Iraq. He claimed Canada's role would be one of training and consulting with the Iraqi military.
In one of his first move as Prime Minister, Justin called Barack Obama to inform him that Canadian fighter jets would no longer conduct airstrikes against ISIS.
WATCH my video to see why this empty rhetoric is just typical Trudeau, and to see what he had to say about Canada's current activity in Iraq.
