Video: Saint-Augustin Canadian Ranger Patrol

24 11 2010

The Saint-Augustin Canadian Ranger Patrol, located in the Lower North Shore of Quebec, conducted its annual training from Oct 23rd to Nov 3rd 2010.

The Canadian Rangers, a sub-component of the Canadian Forces (CF) Reserve, provide patrols and detachments for employment on national-security and public-safety missions in those sparsely settled northern, coastal and isolated areas of Canada which can not conveniently or economically be covered by other elements or components of the CF.

Formally established in 1947,the Canadian Rangers protect Canada’s sovereignty by reporting unusual activities or sightings, collecting local data of significance to the CF, and conducting surveillance or sovereignty patrols as required.
