It means that there are similar atrocities and violence in Darfur, but with all the canadian troops in Afghanistan Canada doesn't send any troops to Darfur, which needs them just as much.

More african countries have UN troops in Darfur and there has been a marked increase in violence there, and peacekeepers are needed.

It means Canadians cannot go to Darfur uninvited. The current UN mandate for peacekeeping in Sudan calls for African Union troops only. For Canadian troops to show up in Darfur unilaterally would be highly illegal under international law.
