mother of canadian soldier killed in afghanistan slams harper's extension of war

Watch it.


Stand up for this Canadian and for all the troops. Stand up for democracy! Tell Stephen Harper and his coalition partner, Michael Ignatieff: Don't extend it! End it!

She says "we are burying our kids ... for what? For what?", but also says that Canadian troops in Afghanistan are "standing on guard for us".

I don't know what else she has said publicly, but maybe she needs to feel that there is exists some small shred of good reason why her son was killed.

I think that's very likely.

But in another sense, there's no contradiction in those two statements. She's saying, the troops are supposed to be there for us, but she's questioning whether or not that is so.
