Canada and the Libyan NATO war

"During a trip to eastern Libya last June, at a time when rebel forces were locked in a stalemate with troops loyal to dictator Moammar Gadhafi and many countries were calling for a ceasefire, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird actively encouraged the rebels to keep fighting.  The revelation opens a new window onto the role Canada played in the civil war - while raising questions about whether this country violated the spirit of the United Nations Security Council resolution that authorized international involvement in the conflict."
