Talking about Afghanistan


Here‘s the transcript of an interview I did last week with Fatima Gailani, the president of Afghanistan’s Red Crescent Society (their equivalent of the Red Cross). In the interview, Gailani discusses the challenge of reconstruction in a country where childbirth is a gravely risky moment, NGOs have to avoid getting on the wrong side of insurgents, and Canadian Forces’ work, she says, is highly useful — as long as soldiers stick to soldiering.


Talking about Afghanistan

  1. I live in Sandy Oregon I rise bronze turkeys nothing but the best, Thats a fact.

  2. I find it interesting Cumbrae's is charging around $17 a lb for this bird when I can buy heritage turkeys from Reeses Farms in Kansas for $4 a lb. Once again it sounds like Canadians are getting ripped off but then Torontonians are notorious for overpaying for stuff just so they can be trendy.

    • Really? Notorious? Never heard of that myself. Sounds like a little bit of make believe or
      envy there??

      • Anyone who has ever shopped in Canada and the U.S. knows that Canadian get gouged worse than turkeys. Meat and poultry in Canada does cost double or more, typically, and the gouging is worst at the high end.

    • It’s actually $17.50 per kilo (kilogram) which is 2.2lbs. Actual cost per lb. is $7.95. Still higher, but worth it.

  3. I had an Orlopp Bronze this past Christmas – so much better!!! Bronze for me every year now!
