If you see soldiers in your neighbourhood this week there is no need to panic. They are simply going through training exercises.
Soldiers from Garrison Petawawa will be in Pembroke, Cobden, and Renfrew Tuesday through Thursday as they conduct basic winter warfare training. This means you’ll also see a number of military vehicles on local roadways.
And this includes Calabogie as well as soldiers wrap up the second of two weeks of training near the Peaks.
They will be there until Friday. Soldiers will be carrying personal weapons, but not carrying or firing any ammunition.
