More bad news for Timmy

The top Canadian soldier in Afghanistan announced Saturday that 800 American soldiers have officially joined his own forces in the dangerous Kandahar province of Afghanistan.

The arrival of the American battalion last month almost doubled the number of foot soldiers on the ground in the province that is under Canadian command.

They will be stationed in the Maywand district northwest of Kandahar city and will report to Brigadier-General Denis Thompson, the Canadian head of Task Force Afghanistan.
