One Country.
One Community.
One Day.

April 30, 2014


Dozens of Canadian troops were on the move near the arena in Provost after it was taken over by members of the Third Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. Capt. Austin Richardson said that approximately 400 troops are using Crescent Point Place as the forward operations base of an exercise called non-combatant evacuation operations (NEO). The Edmonton-based infantry are conducting an operation that simulates getting Canadian citizens out of a foreign country that is de-stabilizing. The men and women each get one fresh meal per day as well as their regular military rations. While these troops were mobile, others rested inside while others (not seen here) maintained a 24 hour guard outside of the building and allowed only those with permission to get onto the grounds. Many of these troops have served in Afghanistan. More photos in the print edition. ©Provost News Photo.
