Canada preparing for quick end to Libya mission

OTTAWA - Canada will contact its allies to prepare for a quick end to its Libyan military mission now that Muammar Gaddafi is dead, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday.
"Our government shall be speaking with our allies to prepare for the end of our military mission in the next few days," Harper said in a statement to reporters in which he also welcomed the news of Gaddafi's death.
Canadian Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard has headed the NATO mission.
"The Libyan people can finally turn the page on 42 years of vicious oppression and continue their journey to a better future," Harper said.
