Canada Contributes a Cargo Plane to Mali Effort
A whole plane?
OTTAWA — Canada is contributing one of its large C-17 military cargo planes to deliver supplies to the capital of Mali after a request from France.
But Prime Minister Stephen Harper insists no Canadian Forces personnel will be involved in any combat action in the landlocked West African country.
An al-Qaeda linked group has taken control of the northern part of Mali and is making gains towards the south.
