Canadian Forces Patrol Heads Out On Sovereignty Patrol In High Arctic

Posted on Monday, March 26 at 09:22 by jensonj
The three-week patrol, launched at a cost of almost $1 million, will include members of the Regular Forces and Canadian Rangers, who are part-time reserve soldiers. They will go in three teams and will face stretches of open water, hard rock, impassable ice and will have to winch machines up a waterfall. Two teams will drive to Eureka, a remote weather station on Ellesmere Island and from there travel around the island before joining up again at Canadian Forces Station Alert at the northern tip of the island.
