PM keeps door open on mission to Darfur
(GLORIA GALLOWAY, 5/11/06, Globe and Mail

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada might send troops to the troubled Darfur region of Sudan despite insistence by his Defence Minister that the mission in Afghanistan precludes significant commitments elsewhere in the world.

"This government stands ready and is in consultation with our friends in the international community to do whatever is necessary to advance the peace process in Darfur," Mr. Harper said yesterday in the House of Commons.

"If that involves sending troops, that will be an option that we consider."

No one ever said starting to act like an adult nation again would be easy.
