Where to and what now?


Postmedia questions where Canadian soldiers will end up stationed after July 2011.

While Harper dithered for months before doing his volte-face, the Europeans took all the best (read: easy) training spots in Kabul or places nearby. As Canada is insisting that most of its trainers will be in or near the capital, which is already awash with trainers from other countries, there is immense interest in what specific training tasks Canada is to be assigned by NATO and how its trainers will be shoehorned into already-crowded bases in the capital.

The Globe says 2011 will also bring a reduction in aid and civilian officials.
