  • Commentary  “A little sympathy for Gorbachev — In the wake of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, spare a thought for Mikhail Gorbachev.  The 83-year-old last Soviet leader has been harshly criticized for his recent remarks in Berlin. He decried a mood of “triumphalism” in the West following the breakup of the USSR, warned of “a new Cold War”, and called for dialogue and the lifting of sanctions.

  • Canada’s envoy in Nigeria on How We’re Helping Look for Those (Still) Missing Girls  “Boko Haram: Canada can’t support Nigeria’s military operations …. we have been looking to identify specific training courses that can help the security force in Nigeria — specifically, the Nigeria Police — and strengthen its capacity to combat and prevent crime and terrorism. Recently, for example, we have experts from our federal police come to Nigeria and train its police on interrogation techniques; we have also provided training on intelligence gathering — information gathering — through the Internet, as an example.

We have also provided some logistical support to our international partners that are working to support Nigeria in combating this phenomenon.  (Q – Is your country offering any support to Nigeria in terms of surveillance and firearms to combat its security challenges?)  No. The support we are providing Nigeria in fighting against current insurgency is in terms of training and capacity building ….”
