This week The West Block is in Halifax covering the Halifax International Security Forum where leaders from over seventy countries have gathered to talk about advancing a modern vision of security. We talk to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about member nations, including Canada, meeting their pledged financial support for the alliance and what NATO is asking its members to do regarding Afghanistan. We also sit down with U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen to talk about Russia and its interference in the U.S. election and the present relationship between Putin and Trump. And, will Canada intervene and take a role to help ease the tensions between Iraqi and Kurdish leaders given we have troops on the ground, caught in the middle?
Guests: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg; U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen; Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan.
