SUBJECT: CANADA: FUNDING APPROVAL FOR EXTENSION OF
INTERNATIONAL POLICE TRAINERS AT JIPTC DELAYED
REF: SECSTATE 197466
1. (SBU) Foreign Affairs Peacekeeping and Peace Operations
Group Director Wendy Gilmour has affirmed that Canada plans
to extend its police trainers at the International Police
Training Center for another year. We understand that the
extension had been endorsed by RCMP authorities and the
funding request was before the Canadian International
Development Agency (CIDA) when the House of Commons voted on
November 28 to bring down the government.
2. (SBU) Though Gilmour believes it unlikely that a new
government will derail Canada's support for the Police
Training Center, it is unclear whether the actual funding
authorization will or can be signed prior to installation of
a new government, sometime in the first quarter of 2006.
Post will monitor the situation and report any developments
