I’m on the ground in one Christian town targeted by ISIS in northern Iraq.
Telskuf is now liberated thanks to Peshmerga forces on the ground, in tandem with US led coalition air strikes in the skies.
Amid the rubble, I speak to Christian townspeople now making their way back home, all of whom credit the air strikes for their ability to finally return home after displacement.
There's only one problem:
Canada had nothing to do with this Christian town's newfound freedom.
One of the very first things Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did upon being elected was to withdraw Canada's six CF-18 —our contribution in the worthwhile fight against the world's greatest evil, ISIS.
Watch as I share my raw reaction from the ground.
