Mud Walls

CIDA and the unilingual International Co-operation Minister Josée Verner respond to accusations that it has done nothing in Kandahar for past year, by pointing out that they have been playing in the mud, making castles in the air.

Adrian Walraven, a development officer with the Canadian International Aid Agency in Kandahar, says progress on the ground in Afghanistan can't be measured the same way it would be at home. Walraven says he's seen the difference even a small mud wall can make to an entire village, even if the project doesn't seem snazzy to Canadians.
