Approximately 2,000 Canadian Army soldiers from Regular and Reserve units across Ontario will be training in Niagara — some of them at Brock University — from Aug. 16-24, as part of Exercise Stalwart Guardian 14.
Military vehicles, buses and personnel will be conducting a variety of activities as they practise and test their skills. At Brock, this will happen just south of Lot V.
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, only blank ammunition will be used.
