September 8, 2016 – Port Stanley, ON
Canadian Armed Forces to train in the Port Stanley area.
Royal Canadian Navy sailors and Canadian Army soldiers from various Reserve units
across Ontario along with members of the Canadian Coast Guard and the RCMP will
be training in the Municipality of Central Elgin and the town of Port Stanley. This
training is entitled Exercise ERIE VALOUR and will occur in two phases on 17-18
September 2016 and 30 September – 02 October 2016. All land and water use is expected
to have minimal impact on the local population and will not impede public access.
The public will see military vehicles, buses, boats, and personnel conducting a
variety of activities as they practice and test their skills. Caution should be
used when passing military vehicles parked on road shoulders as there may be soldiers
on foot in the vicinity. When military personnel are involved in a tactical training
activity, it is requested that members of the public not obstruct their activities
or move in close proximity where soldiers may be focused on their training task.
Members of the public will see soldiers carrying weapons. During the exercise no
live ammunition will be carried, only blanks will be issued.
Exercises such as ERIE VALOUR 2016 are an important way to hone critical skills
and be prepared to assist Canadians when and where military help is needed.
