Soldiers could get uniforms for urban jungle
Future Canadian soldiers could be wearing new uniforms designed to provide camouflage on the streets of our largest cities.
The Defence Department will know by March what designs might work for what is being called a Canadian Urban Environment Pattern.
Those designs are to be based on the "unique requirements" of the urban settings of Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, according to an outline of the project being co-ordinated by scientists at Defence Research and Development Canada in Suffield, Alta.
Ottawa, the nerve centre of government and the military, was left off the list because it doesn't rate as a major metropolitan centre.
I don't know whether to laugh out loud, or cry!
Troops in the streets?
Tell me it's not so??
Why would they need this specifically for Canadian cities? The olympics? The 'Pandemic'? Civil unrest?
Makes my head shake.
