Musings of a Canadian Slacker

Monday, March 01, 2004
Well, the Prime Minister would like to send Canadian Troops to Haiti to help evacuate Canadians there and stabilize things. I have one question for the Prime Minister: What troops?

Update: It was announced today that 450 soldiers from the 2nd battalion, the Royal Canadian Regiment will be sent to Haiti. If I'm not mistaken, this was the last batallion really available, since the rest of 2 Brigade is resting after having come back from Afghanistan and 5 Brigade is busy with the current Afghanistan deployment. 1 Brigade is busy with Bosnia deployments. Interesting also how the Minister of National Defence changed his tone on what was or was not available for deployment.
