The Government of Canada Invests In Space-Based Maritime Surveillance
(Source: Canadian Department of Defence; issued June 17, 2016)
As part of the Government of Canada’s commitment to provide the Canadian Armed Forces with the equipment needed to respond to events and crises at home and abroad, Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan today announced a contract that will expand the Canadian Armed Forces' access to a domestic source of space-based observation data, greatly enhancing their ability to identify and track vessels from space in near-real-time.

The Government of Canada has awarded MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Systems Ltd (MDA) a $48.5 million contract for delivery of the Polar Epsilon 2 system. Polar Epsilon 2 will use imagery from the three-satellite RADARSAT Constellation Mission, to be launched in 2018, to deliver world-leading advanced surveillance capabilities for domestic and global Canadian Armed Forces operations.

The new system will extend and enhance the capacity of Polar Epsilon 1, which works with the RADARSAT 2 satellite, amplifying the Canadian Armed Forces’ ability to detect, identify, and track vessels of interest in Canada’s maritime areas, the Arctic region, and in support of operations around the world. Polar Epsilon 2 will allow identification of ships in addition to their radar-detected positions, providing an integrated, near-real-time maritime situational awareness capability. It will also help support land-based missions as required.

This procurement supports the Industrial and Technological Benefits Policy, which requires strategic investment in Canadian small and medium enterprises.

Under this contract, MDA will deliver ground receiving stations on the East and West coasts of Canada, specifically designed to detect ships from RADAR imagery provided by RADARSAT Constellation Mission.

Quote

“The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring the Canadian Armed Forces remain a modern, combat-effective, multi-role military able to conduct the missions the Government asks of it. The Polar Epsilon 2 project positions Canada as a world leader in space-based remote sensing for arctic and maritime domain awareness, and provides our women and men in uniform with the data and information needed to respond to domestic and international crises and events,” said Harjit S. Sajjan, Defence Minister.

Otan : Le Canada déploiera un bataillon en Lettonie


Posté dans Otan par Laurent Lagneau Le 01-07-2016




Parmi les mesures de « réassurance » qu’adoptera officiellement l’Otan à l’occasion de son prochain sommet, qui se tiendra à Varsovie les 8 et 9 juillet, figure le déploiement de quatre bataillons « robustes » dans en Estonie, Lettonie, Lituanie et en Pologne.

Il s’agira ainsi de dissuader la Russie de déstabiliser, en menant des actions de basse intensité, ces pays, qui craignent l’attitude de leur voisin depuis l’annexion de la Crimée, en mars 2014.

Désormais, l’on connait les pays qui fourniront ces bataillons. Ainsi, aux côtés de l’Allemagne, des États-Unis et du Royaume-Uni, le Canada sera « l’une de quatre nations-cadre » qui vont « renforcer la présence avancée de l’Otan en Europe de l’Est », a expliqué, dans un communiqué, Harjit Sajjan, le ministre canadien de la Défense.

Le Canada mettra sur pied et dirigera un groupement tactique multinational rotationnel », a ajouté le ministre, avant de promettre davantage de détails à l’occasion du sommet de Varsovie. Le bataillon canadien sera déployé en Lettonie, à compter de 2017.

Au total, l’Otan compte déployer 4.000 hommes environ dans les pays baltes et la Pologne. Cette mesure vient s’ajouter à celle visant à créer force de réaction très rapide, mobilisable à très court préavis.

Cela étant, pour le général Ben Hodges, le commandant de l’US Army en Europe, ces mesures restent insuffisantes pour protéger les pays baltes. « C’est vrai que la Russie pourrait conquérir plus vite les États baltes que nous ne pourrions arriver pour les défendre », avait-il affirmé, la semaine passée, lors d’un entretien donné à l’hebdomadaire allemand Die Zeit.

Pour autant, en Russie, ce renforcement du flanc oriental de l’Otan est perçu comme un « acte agressif » près de ses frontières. « Dans ces conditions, nous sommes obligés d’accorder une attention particulière aux tâches liées au renforcement des capacités de défense de notre pays », avait estimé Vladimir Poutine, le président russe, à l’occasion du 75e anniversaire de l’invasion de l’Union soviétique par l’Allemagne nazie.

Canadians Want Open Competition to Pick New Jet, Poll Finds (excerpt)
(Source: The Globe and Mail; published July 03, 2016)
By Daniel Leblanc
OTTAWA --- The Trudeau government will suffer a blow in public opinion if it skips an open competition and hand-picks the new fighter jets that will replace Canada’s fleet of CF-18s, a new poll paid for by a manufacturer has found.

The survey, conducted by Nanos Research, found large support for the position that the Liberal Party held in opposition, namely that the Canadian Forces should go to tenders to buy their next fighter jet. However, officials have refused in recent public comments to commit to a competition, insisting instead on the urgent need to fill a “capability gap” between the low number of available CF-18s and the demands of Canada’s NATO and NORAD commitments.

The poll of 1,000 Canadians was paid for by Lockheed Martin, the manufacturer of the stealth F-35, and provided in full to The Globe and Mail.

It found that 82 per cent of respondents would have a “negative or somewhat negative impression” of the government if it sole-sourced the purchase of new jet fighters to a company without competition. On the other hand, 97 per cent of respondents said it would be important or somewhat important for the government to launch an “open and transparent selection process” for the new fighter jets.

Pollster Nik Nanos said the Liberals are reaping what they sowed in opposition, when they lambasted the Conservative government for trying to buy F-35s without going to tenders. In the poll, 59 per cent of respondents said Canada would get poor or very poor “value for tax dollars” if it opted out of a competition.

“The risk for the government is that they engage in a potential sole-source [contract], which isn’t what Canadians would expect from a Trudeau government,” Mr. Nanos said in an interview. “Polling suggests that if they do sole-source it, there will probably be negative fallout for the Liberals.” (end of excerpt)

Canada Conceals Provision of Military Resources Under Arms Deal With Riyadh

The Canadian government keeps silent on the provision of military bases, staff, and resources to test-drive the heavily armored military vehicles being purchased by the Saudi government, media reported Tuesday.


MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The deal between Canada and Saudi Arabia on supplies of Light Armored Vehicles (LAV) was prepared and signed in 2013-2014 fiscal year. It is worth some $15 billion and is said to be the largest arms contract in Canada's history. Last year, the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) brokered a deal for LAVs to be manufactured by General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) based in the United States to be purchased by Saudi Arabia.
"GDLS-C requires the use of a suitable Canadian Forces Base… [as well as] support, staff coordination, administrative and logistics assistance," a memo prepared for Minister of International Trade Chrystia Freeland and obtained by VICE News reads.

According to the documents obtained by the broadcaster, the test-drive is being carried out using Canadian Forces facilities, while the Department of National Defence only allows for the use of its bases for non-disturbing activities.

The documents reveal that the deal, formally arranged between GDLS Canada and the Saudi government, was in fact an agreement between Canada and Saudi Arabia.

Rheinmetall to supply Royal Canadian Navy with decoy ammunition for the next thirty years

At the recent CANSEC show in May 2016 in Canada, the Canadian government and ammunition suppliers Rheinmetall and General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems–Canada signed a licence agreement to produce Omnitrap decoy ammunition for the Canadian Navy. Worth a mid-range eight-figure euro amount over the course of its thirty-year lifetime, the contract encompasses the supply of core components by Rheinmetall for Omnitrap decoy ammunition. Rheinmetall will provide technical assistance in setting up the assembly line at the General Dynamics facility in Repentigny, QC, where final assembly will take place.

Leonardo-Finmeccanica Sees US Coast Guard’s C-27J as Calling Card in Canada
Tom Kington, Defense News 12:42 p.m. EDT July 14, 2016


FARNBOROUGH, England — The introduction into service of the C-27J by the US Coast Guard is giving a handy boost to the aircraft ahead of Canada’s selection of a new search and rescue aircraft, according to a source at Italian manufacturer Leonardo-Finmeccanica said on Thursday.

After receiving four of 14 C-27s, the Coast Guard flew one of the aircraft to the Farnborough International Airshow this week for static display. The four aircraft are now operational in Sacramento, replacing older C-130H aircraft, while up to six will be deployed to Florida with others used for training.

Later this year, Canada is expected to choose between the C-27J and the Airbus C-295 as its new search and rescue aircraft, following a long, drawn-out selection process.

Canadian Frigate Charlottetown Joins US, NATO Exercises in Black Sea


The Canadian frigate Charlottetown has joined US and NATO forces in the Black Sea for two military exercises intended to meet the nation’s military obligations to its allies, Armed Forces Canada said in a press release on Monday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — In the first of two exercises, named Sea Shield, Charlottetown will practice combat readiness, including anti-submarine warfare, the release explained.

"[C]harlottetown’s participation in joint activities and training exercises improves our interoperability with NATO allies and other partners, and better prepares us to meet our collective defense and deterrence obligations," the frigate’s Commander Andrew Hingston said in the release.


Sea Shield will be followed by a second exercise that ends in early August named Sea Breeze, which Canadian officials have described as an air, land and maritime exercise.

NATO and US forces have increased activities in the Black Sea in response to tensions with Russia, which bases its Black Sea Fleet in the Crimea.

Russia has protested the presence of US and NATO warships in the Black Sea, citing a 1936 convention that restricts warship tonnage in bodies of water for nations that do not border the waterway.

Canada Casts Wide Net in Search for Fighter-Jet Replacements
David Pugliese, Defense News 4:10 p.m. EDT July 20, 2016




VICTORIA, British Columbia — The Canadian government has issued a request for information from aerospace firms about the types of fighter aircraft they could provide, a signal that an earlier proposal to acquire Boeing Super Hornet jets on an interim basis is likely dead.

When the Super Hornet proposal first surfaced in early June, Lockheed Martin launched an aggressive lobbying and media campaign to warn that F-35 work being done by Canadian firms would be put in jeopardy if the Canadian government proceeded with such a move.

Government officials have not raised the proposal since, and companies have now been asked to provide the initial data on their aircraft by July 29.

The Department of National Defence plans to rewrite its requirements for a new fighter jet, said Harjit Sajjan, the defence minister for the Liberal Party government.

Sajjan and other Liberal government officials have said the existing requirements, developed by the previous Conservative Party government, are geared to favor the F-35.

At the same time, Sajjan has said he wants an open competition to replace Canada’s aging CF-18 fighter jets.

Lockheed Martin is responding to the Canadian government’s request for information about its fighter jet, a company spokesperson confirmed.

Canada Ditches Super Hornet After Threats to Buy F-35 or Lose 10,000 Jobs


Lockheed Martin pointed an economic weapon of mass disruption at Ottawa and it appears that Justin Trudeau has blinked caving to the defense contractor’s threats.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rose to power last fall on a pledge not to purchase the defective F-35, an aircraft that he has said “does not work,” is too expensive, and is wholly incompatible with Canada’s defense needs pushing his country instead to move towards a deal to acquire Boeing’s Super Hornet – a fighter jet with greater air maneuverability allowing it advanced performance in air-to-air combat.

That promise crashed along the shores of political reality this week as Canada reneged from its earlier proposal to acquire Boeing Super Hornet jets on an interim basis to plug the country’s air defense capability gap after Lockheed Martin threatened to pull all of its operations out of the country which would result in a massive layoff of some 10,000 employees and potentially bankrupt portions of Canada’s defense sector that benefits from the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.

The Canadian government issued a request for information from aerospace firms about the types of fighter aircraft they could provide this week, marking the pullout from their arrangement with Boeing, with companies expected to provide initial aircraft data by July 29.

The Department of National Defense plans to rewrite its requirements for a new fighter jet, said Harjit Sajjan, the defense minister for the Liberal Party government. However, the existing aircraft requirements left by the previous Conservative government of Stephen Harper are designed to favor the F-35 and any attempts to radically alter the criteria will lead to another uproar by Lockheed Martin.
A spokesperson for Lockheed Martin confirmed that the company is responding to the Canadian government’s request for information about the F-35, something that it had been reticent to do prior, which signals that the fix is in and that Canada has capitulated to the defense contractor’s threats and extortion.

Other contenders do exist in the process including Boeing’s Super Hornet, the Eurofighter Typhoon, the Dassault Rafale, and Saab’s Gripen so Canada may ultimately decide not to purchase the F-35 against their will despite current indications.

The much maligned F-35 has already cost American taxpayers upwards of $2 trillion due to its expensive and unreliable 3D-printed design along with repeated testing delays due to software malfunctions and safety hazards that have set the program back by several years.


A glitch in the fighter jet’s software causes it to spontaneously shutdown mid-flight raising a host of pilot safety concerns. Those issues are exacerbated by the fact that the F-35's Martin Baker ejection seat has been shown in testing to instantly snap the neck of or decapitate pilots under 135 pounds (61.3kg) while pilots between the weights of 135 and 160 pounds (72.6kg) are believed to also be at an enhanced risk of sudden death upon ejection.

Government Launches Open Competition for Ship Support Contract
(Source: Public Services and Procurement Canada; issued July 21, 2016)
GATINEAU, QC –-- The Government of Canada recognizes the importance of delivering a single ship support contract to service the Royal Canadian Navy. This contract will provide the best value to Canadian taxpayers, while supporting Canada’s shipbuilding industry.

As part of the National Shipbuilding Strategy and following extensive industry consultation, the Minister of Public Services and Procurement, the Honourable Judy M. Foote, today announced the launch of an open competition to provide in-service support, including refit, repair and maintenance and training, for the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and Joint Support Ships (JSS).

Combining the contracts for the AOPS and JSS In-Service Support (AJISS) under a single contractor will benefit industry by increasing workforce stability and benefit Canadians by reducing costs through economies of scale. The AJISS contract will include an initial service period of 8 years, with options to extend services up to 35 years under an open and competitive process.

The National Shipbuilding Strategy is a long-term commitment to shipbuilding that will rejuvenate Canada’s marine industry, support Canadian technological innovation, strengthen the middle class, and help grow the economy to many communities across the country.

Quotes

"The Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships and Joint Support Ships In-Service Support contract will provide work for the Canadian marine industry for the next 35 years. Our Government is creating stable middle-class jobs and generating economic growth from coast to coast to coast. At the same time, we are seeking new ways to make procurement work better for businesses and Canadians, in this case by having one support contract for both ships," said The Honourable Judy M. Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement.

"The Government is delivering on its commitment to the renewal of the Royal Canadian Navy’s fleet under the National Shipbuilding Strategy. By combining the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships and Joint Support Ships In‑Service Support into one contract, we ensure the effective maintenance and support of these fleets over their operational lives. This, in turn, allows the Navy to continue to proudly serve Canadians," said The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence.

"The Industrial and Technological Benefits Policy requires defence contractors and their major suppliers to invest an amount in Canada equal to the value of their defence contracts. The AJISS procurement presents a unique opportunity for the Royal Canadian Navy to work closely with industry partners to sustain these vessels, while creating jobs and generating economic activity in Canada,” said The Honourable Navdeep Bains Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

Quick Facts
-- Up to six Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships are being built by Irving Shipbuilding. The delivery of the first vessel to the Royal Canadian Navy is scheduled for 2018.
-- Two Joint Support Ships will be built by Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards. The delivery of the first vessel to the Royal Canadian Navy is scheduled for 2020/2021.
-- Value Proposition commitments will be applied to this contract.

Liberals Pay $33 Million to Stay In F-35 Program, Despite Not Committing to Buy Them (excerpt)
(Source: CBC News; published July 26, 2016)
By Lee Berthiaume
Canada has so far forked over more than $311 million to develop the F-35 — without any guarantee it will actually buy the multibillion-dollar stealth fighter.

The most recent instalment was made June 24, when the Liberal government quietly paid $32.9 million to the U.S. program office overseeing development of the warplane, despite having promised during last year's election campaign not to buy the F-35.

The contribution keeps Canada at the table as one of the nine partners in the project for the next year. Partners get a discount when purchasing the stealth fighter, and have access to billions of dollars in contracts associated with producing the plane.

Those potential industrial benefits are a big part of the reason why Canada continues to pay into the program, said Jordan Owens, a spokeswoman for Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan. The government says Canadian companies have secured US$812 million in contracts since Canada's first F-35 payment in 1997.

"New skills and technologies gained through access to the program have helped position Canadian industry to take advantage of other advanced aerospace and defence projects," Owens added in an email.

Being a partner, however, does not guarantee future work.

U.S. defence giant Lockheed Martin, which makes the F-35, warned last month that future work would be directed to other countries if Canada chooses not to buy the stealth fighter.

Remaining at the table makes sense if there is a chance Canada will buy the plane, said former Defence Department procurement chief Alan Williams.

"But if they've already made up their mind that they're going to buy something else, then it's a waste of money."

No decisions yet made on replacing CF-18s

During the campaign, the Liberals promised not to buy the F-35 and to hold a competition to replace the existing fleet of aging CF-18 fighters. Experts say that has put the government in a bind, since there's a real chance the fighter would come out on top in an open and fair competition.

The government recently launched consultations with jet fighter manufacturers to address what Sajjan has described as a shortage of available CF-18s. But some worry the consultations are more about giving the Liberals political cover to buy a plane other than the F-35 without holding a competition.

Owens said no decisions have been made in replacing the CF-18s. The five companies involved in the consultations are to submit details about their aircraft by Friday. (end of excerpt)

Canada's Massive Surface-Combatant Program To Get Underway This Summer

David Pugliese, Defense News
6 hours ago


VICTORIA, British Columbia — The Canadian government will ask for bids as early as next month for the largest shipbuilding program in the country’s history, with the field of contenders for a new fleet of surface combatants expected to be dominated by European firms.


The project to build the Canadian Surface Combatant will see the selection of an existing warship design and combat system to reduce risk and speed up construction.
Procurement minister Judy Foote said the decision to base the warships on an existing vessel will allow the delivery of the ships two years earlier than could be expected with a new design.
The first of the warships, which will form the backbone of the future Royal Canadian Navy fleet, are expected around 2024.


Construction is to begin sometime after 2020.
Department of National Defence analysts have projected the ships could eventually cost (CAN) $40 billion (US $31 billion), and not the (CAN) $26 billion originally first estimated.
Foote has called the $26 billion figure "a really unrealistic number that we have to deal with — and we will."
Irving Shipbuilding of Halifax, Nova Scotia, will construct the warships and act as prime contractor.
Defense industry sources say they expect a formal request for proposals to be issued by the end of August or in early September.

The Canadian government has already pre-qualified the following firms to compete for the warship design: Alion-JJMA Corp., BAE Systems Surface Ships Limited, DCNS, Fincantieri, Navantia, Odense Maritime Technology and ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.
But other companies also are being invited to consider whether their ship designs might meet Canada’s needs.
On July 25 the Spanish Navy’s F-105 frigate, Christopher Colombus, visited Halifax as Navantia promoted its warship design to the Royal Canadian Navy.
The French government and DCNS have conducted similar marketing in the past.
The Canadian program was to acquire 15 ships originally, but concerns about the budget have thrown that number into question.

anada to Participate in US-Sponsored Drills in Panama Canal

Canada's Department of National Defense said that Canadian military personnel will take part in the Panama Canal drills, known as PANAMX, on July 29 through August 5 to practice canal traffic protection measures.



WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Canadian military personnel will take part in the Panama Canal drills, known as PANAMX, on July 29 through August 5 to practice canal traffic protection measures, Canada's Department of National Defense said in a press release on Thursday.
"Participation in Exercise PANAMAX contributes to the operational readiness of the Canadian Armed Forces, allowing the Canadian Armed Forces to meet the likely tasks that the Government of Canada will assign," the release stated.

The exercise, led by Chile, Colombia and Peru, is sponsored by the US Southern Command, and has the total of 20 participating members.

"Training will cover many modern-day threats in land, sea, air, and cyber environments," the release said.

Some 14,000 vessels use the Panama Canal every year, according to the Canadian Defense Department.

Canada Scores High-Powered Advanced Battleships of Foreign Design
The Canadian government will institute a formal proposal as early as next month for the largest shipbuilding program in the country’s history, with European firms expected to dominate the competition for the right to design, according to defense analysts.
The Canadian Surface Combatant program calls for using an existing warship design and combat system, as a means to reduce project costs and speed construction efforts. Procurement minister Judy Foote explained that the decision will allow the ships to be battle-capable two years earlier than would be expected if a new design was implemented.

The program’s first warships, forming the backbone of the Royal Canadian Navy fleet, are expected in 2024, with construction to commence after 2020.

The exercise aims to boost interoperability between the navies in handling mine warfare threats
The US Navy (USN) has concluded a multilateral exercise that aims to improve its mine countermeasures (MCM) interoperability with partner navies.

The exercise, which took place in and around waters off Southern California over four weeks, was conducted as part of the US Pacific Fleet-hosted Rim of the Pacific ('RIMPAC') 2016 maritime exercise.

Partner services in the drill included the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), the German Armed Forces, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF), the Mexican Navy (Armada de México), and the Chilean Navy (Armada de Chile).

In its statement, the USN described the MCM drill as the service's "most complex mine warfare exercise" given the number of participating services, and the inaugural deployment of a Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship, USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52), as a forward staging base for the multinational forces.

In addition to that MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopters - airborne mine countermeasures (AMCM) derivatives of the CH-53E Super Stallion - conducted deck landing qualifications on Pearl Harbor 's flight deck as part of the exercises.

"These firsts during 'RIMPAC' [Southern California] 2016 provided a distinct and unique environment and experience for participants", said the USN.

"What was great about this exercise is that the forces of multiple nations came together to execute a series of very complicated evolutions and did so in a seamless and timely manner", said Commander David Burke of the USN's Task Force 177.

In total the participating services detected and disposed a total of 77 mines over the course of 78 operational dives, 300 flight hours, and 77 autonomous underwater vehicle operations.

"RIMPAC' 2016 ran from 30 June to 4 August and involved 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel from 27 countries.

HMCS Vancouver to deploy to Asia Pacific

David Carl, Toronto - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
19 August 2016

Canadian frigate HMCS Vancouver will deploy to the Asia-Pacific region, the Department of National Defence (DND) announced on 18 August.

Vancouver is scheduled to participate in Exercise 'KAKADU', a biennial event hosted by the Royal Australian Navy, as well as 'WESTPLOY 16'. The deployment is meant to strengthen ties between the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and other navies of the region, including Indonesia and Vietnam. The ship also took part in 'Rim of the Pacific 2016' from 30 July to 4 August.

Moreover, the deployment will give Vancouver, recently modernised under the Halifax-class Modernisation/Frigate Life Extension (HCM/FELEX) programme, an opportunity to further test the capabilities of its upgraded weaponry, electronic warfare suite, communications, and radar.

Le Canada va mettre 600 militaires à la disposition des Nations uniesPosté dans Amériques, Diplomatie par Laurent Lagneau Le 27-08-2016





Au cours de ces dernières années, le Canada a fortement réduit sa participation aux opérations de maintien de la paix (OMP) menées par les Nations unies au point que, actuellement, l’on ne compte plus qu’une trentaine de militaires canadiens parmi les Casques bleus alors qu’ils étaient 3.000 en 1993.

Mais, avec l’arrivée au pouvoir de Justin Trudeau, issu du Parti libéral, qui a remporté les dernières élections législatives, les choses vont changer dans le cadre d’un « Programme pour la stabilisation et les opérations de paix » (PSOP) doté d’un budget de 450 millions de dollars canadiens sur trois ans.

Ce programme, présenté le 26 août par les ministres canadiens des Affaires étrangères, Stéphane Dion, de la Défense, Harjit Sajjan, et de la Sécurité publique, Ralph Goodale, lors d’une conférence de presse donnée sur la base aérienne de Bagotville, vise donner au Canada une « voix plus forte » sur la scène internationale tout coordonnant les actions en matière de politique étrangère, de défense, de développement et de sécurité nationale.

Ainsi, pour le gouvernement canadien, l’enjeu est de « s’attaquer aux causes et aux effets des conflits » et de « prévenir leur escalade ou leur récurrence » en se focalisant sur « l’alerte précoce, la prévention des conflits, le dialogue, la médiation et la consolidation de la paix, ainsi que l’autonomisation des femmes dans la prise de décisions pour la paix et la sécurité. »

« Le PSOP nous permettra de réunir toutes les ressources sur le terrain afin de mieux protéger les populations civiles et intervenir rapidement auprès des collectivités menacées, tout en tenant compte des besoins particuliers des groupes les plus vulnérables, dont les personnes déplacées, les réfugiés, les femmes et les enfants », a expliqué Stéphane Dion. « Il est temps de sortir de notre isolement pour faire face aux pires défis du monde depuis longtemps », a-t-il ajouté.

« Le Canada doit être un acteur positif dans le monde », a, de son côté, justifié Justin Trudeau, le Premier ministre lors d’un déplacement au Québec. « C’est une grave responsabilité d’envoyer nos troupes à l’étranger », a-t-il souligné.

En outre, cet engagement en faveur des opérations de l’ONU entre aussi dans le cadre de la campagne du Canada pour siéger comme membre non permanent du Conseil de sécurité d’ici 5 ans. « Nous sommes déterminés à revitaliser le rôle historique du Canada comme contributeur clé du maintien de la paix des Nations unies et à aider à faire progresser les réformes en cours » dans ce domaine, avait annoncé M. Trudeau, en mars dernier.

Cet aspect a été critiqué par l’opposition parlementaire canadienne. « Le but premier de ça pour nous est de donner une bonne image aux Nations unies pour essayer de regagner un siège. Mais est-ce que c’est une priorité pour le Canada, est-ce que c’est une priorité internationale actuellement? Moi je crois que non », a fait valoir Pierre Paul-Hus, le porte-parole du Parti conservateur pour les affaires militaires, lequel a dénoncé une « manipulation ».

Concrètement, le Canada entend engager 600 militaires dans les opérations actuellement menées par les Nations unies. Et ils serait très probablement envoyés en Afrique, où plusieurs missions importantes sont en cours, avec des moyens exigeants d’être renforcés, comme au Mali, en Centrafrique ou encore au Sud-Soudan.

L’annonce d’Ottawa a été immédiatement saluée par Stéphane Dujarric, le porte-parole de l’ONU. Des « discussions pour définier comment seront utilisés ces nouveaux moyens seront entamées rapidement », a-t-il dit, en suggérant que le Canada pourrait fournir des hélicoptères, qui manquent aux opérations en cours, comme au Mali par exemple.

Cette contribution canadienne aura « un grand impact », s’est encore réjoui M. Dujarric. « Il n’y a aucun doute que les forces armées canadiennes peuvent nous aider à renforcer nos capacités partout dans le monde », a-t-il estimé, d’autant plus qu’elles ont « une longue et glorieuse tradition de maintien de la paix. »

Toutefois, le ministre canadien de la Défense, a prévenu que les militaires canadiens enrôlés sous la bannière de l’ONU n’auront pas la tâche facile.

« La nature des conflits dans le monde change. Ils deviennent plus complexes que jamais », a-t-il en effet averti Harjit Sajjan. « Dans le passé, les opérations de maintien de la paix consistaient à soutenir une paix négociée entre des ennemis, en venant s’insérer entre eux pour préserver la stabilité. Malheureusement, ce n’est plus le cas » car aujourd’hui, elles sont « menées à des endroits où il n’y a peut-être pas de paix à préserver, où une paix fragile est constamment à risque de sombrer dans la violence, des violences qui touchent les plus vulnérables, et particulièrement contre les femmes et les enfants », a-t-il expliqué.

Des soldats de Valcartier dans la jungle brésilienne pour une compétition internationale 0
par Nicolas Laffont le 22 août 2016 à 18:00


Dès le 23 août, dix soldats du 3e Bataillon Royal 22e Régiment basé à Valcartier, commenceront leur périple à travers la forêt tropicale de la région amazonienne du Brésil dans le cadre de la 2e Compétition internationale des patrouilles.

Cette activité se déroule au Centre d’instruction de guerre dans la jungle de l’Armée brésilienne, à Manaus, au Brésil. Les soldats de l’Armée canadienne se trouvent au Brésil depuis le 15 août pour se préparer à la compétition de cette année. Au total, près de vingt équipes de quatorze pays sont inscrites.

Cette activité offre une possibilité unique aux soldats participants d’aiguiser leurs compétences en matière de patrouille dans un terrain difficile et imprévisible. Le Centre d’instruction de guerre dans la jungle à Manaus est reconnu partout dans le monde pour la formation de grande qualité qu’il offre. Cette compétition permet aux soldats de l’Armée canadienne de mettre à l’épreuve leur endurance physique, leur force mentale, leur leadership et leurs compétences de soldat.

«Les compétitions internationales d’adresse permettent aux soldats participants de mettre à l’épreuve leurs habiletés et leur résilience dans divers environnements et d’acquérir de précieuses compétences qui les aideront à devenir de meilleurs soldats. L’équipe canadienne qui participe à la 2e Compétition internationale des patrouilles au Brésil pourra partager les expériences qu’elle aura acquises à la sueur de son front avec ses collègues et renforcer l’excellence globale de l’Armée canadienne», a mentionné le major‑général J.M. Lanthier, commandant du Quartier général du Centre de doctrine et d’instruction de l’Armée canadienne.

Le ministère de la Défense nationale et les Forces armées canadiennes continuent de développer et de renforcer leurs relations de défense avec le Brésil. La collaboration continue avec les principaux partenaires stratégiques des Amériques cadre avec les priorités du Canada en matière de défense dans la région.

L’Armée canadienne dit accueillir favorablement cette occasion d’interagir avec ses alliés, de mettre à l’essai et de renforcer ses capacités dans divers environnements opérationnels. La participation à des activités comme la 2e Compétition internationale des patrouilles «permet aux soldats canadiens de montrer leurs compétences spécialisées et leur professionnalisme dans un contexte exigeant».

Le Centre d’instruction de guerre dans la jungle à Manaus a été créé par l’Armée brésilienne en 1964 et sa mission première est de former les soldats à la guerre dans la jungle. Depuis sa création, le Centre a formé plus de 6 000 soldats brésiliens et plusieurs armées dans le monde ont suivi les cours de formation hautement spécialisés qu’il offre.

Le Canada prépare le déploiement de ses CF-18 en Lettonie





Le ministère de la défense canadien a annoncé, début septembre, l'envoi d'une équipe de représentants des forces armées canadiennes en Lettonie afin d'y préparer le déploiement d'une force interarmées en 2017. Dans le cadre des mesures de Réassurance de l'OTAN, le Canada va en effet déployer des moyens militaires dans les états baltes afin de les intégrer à un groupe de combat multinational.

Jusqu'à six chasseurs CF-18 Hornet pourront être déployés, a annoncé Ottawa. Comme les chasseurs français et allemands actuellement postés dans les états baltes, ils effectueront des missions de police du ciel et participeront à des exercices multinationaux.

Le Canada qui a retiré ses chasseurs des opérations contre Daesh en Irak affirme donc avec ce déploiement son engagement dans la sécurité collective des pays membres de l'OTAN.
