… this time, into Latvia – this from the foreign affairs info-machine:

Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan and Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion today announced that Canada will take on a leadership role within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to support the Alliance’s strengthened deterrence and defence posture in Eastern and Central Europe.

As one of four Framework Nations Canada will establish and lead a rotational multinational NATO battlegroup which will contribute to NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence in Eastern and Central Europe along with the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Additional details of the Canadian Armed Forces’ contribution will be announced at the upcoming NATO Summit, which will take place in Warsaw, Poland, on 8-9 July 2016
