Guess Who Else Says People Should Know More About AFG Mission?

You know how I feel about the need for better communication when it comes to explaining why Canada is in Afghanistan (if you don’t, check here & here for examples).

Someone else supporting this idea is none other than former Chief of Defence Staff Rick Hillier – this, from a recent speech of his:

“Canadians crave information about the country’s role in Afghanistan, something they’re not getting enough of from the media, says Gen. Rick Hillier, one of the country’s most respected soldiers.  “They don’t get enough information. They desperately want information so they can make their own decisions,” Hillier said during an interview between public appearances in Niagara Falls Saturday …. “I have not looked back (since leaving the defence department). I still think about Afghanistan. So should all Canadians,” he said.”

Good point.
