    Kurdish Peshmerga fighters stand guard on the outskirts of Mosul January 26, 2015. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are digging trenches and building defense berms in Wadi al-Ghorab (Valley Of The Crows), less than 2 km away from the IS-held Sultan Abdullah village, which demarcates the new border of their autonomous region. The Kurds have enjoyed de facto self rule since the first Gulf War in 1991. They are now closer than ever to achieving their dream of full independence. Yet they are menaced by the deadly ambitions of the Islamic caliphate across the frontline. Picture taken  January 26, 2015.

  • How Trump’s opposition to NAFTA affects Canada
    During his campaign, President-elect Donald Trump opposed NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, which began in 1994 and opened up trade between the U.S., Canada and Mexico. He stated that the treaty sent U.S. jobs out of the country, particularly to Mexico. Alexander Panetta, a Washington correspondent for The Canadian Press, joins Alison Stewart to discuss.
