Obama, Canada PM agree Syria chemical weapon use merits firm response

OTTAWA - US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Tuesday agreed that the use of chemical weapons in Syria merited a firm, effective and timely response from the international community, a spokesman for Harper said.
The two leaders talked amid mounting signs that Washington and its allies are edging toward a limited use of force against Syrian President Bashar Assad's loyalists in the wake of a poison gas attack last week that killed hundreds of civilians.
"Both leaders agreed that significant use of chemical weapons merits a firm response from the international community in an effective and timely manner," Harper spokesman Andrew MacDougall said in a statement.
