Change in approach necessary as Canadian Army feels the squeeze
The commander of our Army is rightly concerned that Canada has little more to offer in terms of a sustained commitment to a reinforced NATO brigade in Latvia.
Canadian Armed Forces members participate in an exercise at Camp Ādaži, Latvia, in October 2019. Last June, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed an agreement to grow the allied force in Latvia to a full brigade, but that increase in personnel should come from the other nine European NATO allies currently contributing soldiers, writes Scott Taylor.
