In the CBC report last night, we learn that Chris Alexander, current star Conservative candidate in Ajax, informed Canadian officials, while he was working with the United Nations as special representative, that the governor was behind the bombing deaths of five UN workers. Alexander also informed Canadian officials that "...attacks on Internationals in Kandahar are increasingly being carried out by … narcotics interests, that have a stake in continued instability, rather than by insurgents." If you watch the video of the CBC report, it is made clear that the governor would be one of those "narcotics interests." What did Canada do in response to Alexander's information?
Despite the warnings that Canada's own ally in Afghanistan had killed UN workers, the Canadian government continued to work with Khalid.Again, as you will see in the video, it is striking that a military officer who testified before the Military Police Complaints Commission two weeks ago, still speaks highly of the governor, describing him as a "character" and saying "he got it, he knew how his province ran," "he had his levers on all the controls." No kidding.
Alexander, a former Canadian ambassador to Afghanistan, is now a federal Conservative candidate in Ontario. CBC News made several attempts to contact Alexander for further comment regarding this story, but he has not responded.No, he wouldn't. He's in Conservative candidate land now where speaking to the media is not high on the list.
Wonder if Richard Colvin would ever run for the Conservatives.
