Canada weighs US request for more help in Mideast

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Wednesday Canada is weighing an additional US request for military help in the fight against the Islamic State group.


Harper said he received the request in the last few days but declined to share details because the Americans "didn't make the letter public."


Harper made the announcement during a panel discussion in New York hosted by Canadian diplomats and the Wall Street Journal's editor-in-chief. The prime minister said there needs to be some debate within his government before he makes a final decision.
