This week the Canadian Army Reserve personnel from 31 Canadian Brigade Group will participate in the Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) Driver & Maintenance course. It will be conducting mounted reconnaissance driver training along 401, Hwy 89, and in the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden training area.

Activities will include single and patrol level movement on planned routes to and from Windsor, London and CFB Borden, near Barrie.

All activities will happen throughout the day and night on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Participating soldiers will not be carrying weapons of any kind. They will remain within the area of vehicles, except for any required maintenance and resupply.

The training is being conducted to maintain and further develop the skills of Canadian Army Reserve soldiers in Armoured Reconnaissance operations and to practice discipline, safety and effectiveness while operating specific vehicle platforms within the local areas.

All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience to those in the area.
