Media in Calgary recently got an exclusive look at armed forces training.
The Kings Own Calgary Regiment held a virtual training event preparing members for assignment both at home and abroad.
Major Christopher Hunt with the Regiment says the focus is training junior commanders.
"It's really the core and essence of their job, being able to coordinate and plan within larger teams so that they're able to implement the larger plan they've been given." Hunt explains that it's much easier to train indoors first.
The Nunavut Impact Review Board has given the green light to Arctic Ram 2016, this year's version of an annual Arctic training exercise for members of Canada's armed forces.
This year, that's set to take place outside the hamlet of Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island.
The details of the exercise wouldn't look out of place in a Tom Clancy novel.
A report commissioned by Manitoba warns flood protection in the province has dozens of significant weaknesses and needs $1 billion in upgrades now to prevent billions in damage down the road.
The 1,600-page study details more than 100 vulnerabilities.
It says defences along the Assiniboine River between Portage la Prairie and Winnipeg are particularly weak and suggests that a flood in the area has the potential to cause up to $2 billion in damage if they fail.
If you see soldiers with guns, don't worry; they're shooting blanks.
Soldiers from the 56th Field Artillery Regiment will be honing their skills in Winona, ON.
About 40 of them will conduct their "Cold Start" training exercise on public roads and mostly in the area of the Winona Range.
Residents should use caution when passing military vehicles parked on shoulders because soldiers might be on foot nearby.
