While I think Harper has done a good job of supporting the troops I would like to see more about convincing Canadians that this is a good cause. Canadians are good people who want to help. They dont want to see casulities but it must be expained so they can understand Canadians are needed and wanted in A-Stan! This is a good cause and the fact that so many Canadians are against it shows ignorance and not enough education.

This article is about the US in Iraq but I think it applies to us in A-Stan as well.

Critical Step #3: Wage an Information War

The final critical step deals with the role of the media. Even if the forces in Iraq can be effectively reorganized and American talent can be brought to the fight, any successes will be instantly nullified if portrayed negatively in the news. A major shortcoming in all Iraq strategy to date is the failure to recognize the supreme importance of information. The two “centers of gravity” for this war should not be identified as the senior Al Qa’ida leadership or Anbar Province, but instead as Iraqi and American public opinion. Victory is utterly impossible without fully engaging both. It is therefore surprising that we collectively have done so little to influence the media coverage at home and abroad. The military has much to learn from the public relations teams used by corporate America, where “brand” or reputation has a direct effect on earnings. The Department of Defense needs to adopt a strategy of more proactive, direct engagement with the US media, even direct-hiring the best of the private sector to train and lead these expanded media relations teams.

What more can you need to explain to Canadians of course they are helpfully but there are some who just don't give a damn and worry bout themselves more then Afgan Joe, It's the sad reality but people tend to linke Afgan front with Bush. Which is why Ingorance tends to cloud people's judgement.
