Will the new 105 levers/shifters work with cantilever brakes(3 posts)

Will the new 105 levers/shifters work with cantilever brakesDamn

I'm in the process of switching over my Bob Jackson touring frame from downtube shifters to all new 105. The bike has LX cantilever brakes and I'm wondering if the new STI levers will work. If not, do I need to get a little pulley thing for the brakes? If so what is it and where can I find it?
Thanks

I have Ultegra and older XT cantis on my cross bike and they work perfectly. IIRC, you only need the travel agent (or similar) if you are going to use v-brakes with STI road (or older canti mountain) levers.
