Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Canada's Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, in an election debate late Monday defended Canadian air strikes against Daesh group in Iraq and Syria, while his political rivals called for a pullback.

The New Democrats, if elected, would end the military mission, while the Liberals said they would withdraw Canadian war planes, but continue training Kurdish forces in Iraq.

"This (ISIS) is a group that would slaughter literally millions of people in its wake, has a stated intention to launch terrorist attacks around the world, including against this country, and has indicated it has the capacity to do that," Harper said.

"We have to keep pressure (on ISIS) so they can’t use it as a base for terrorist operations," he said.

Harper defended C-24 , his government’s controversial bill allowing Canadians with dual citizenship to be stripped of their Canadian citizenship if convicted of terror offences.
