Well, my answer is, again, to raise.... I feel that I'm not being very helpful, that I'm causing more problems than anything else.
If there are problems to be solved, at some point there has to be a decision made about what Canada wants out of this situation: Are you wanting to support the government, or are you wanting to support the TPLF?
I understand this is a decision that people don't want to make, but in some ways it's going to be unavoidable, because both groups are powerful. The Ethiopian government has huge numbers of troops. It defeated the Eritreans in 2000 by just throwing more troops at them. They are not going away, and neither is the TPLF. Managing those two, beyond just saying that you want to include people, is going to be difficult.
