Canadian troops in Kandahar to assess safety of stranded military containers

Global News

OTTAWA – A team of 15 Canadian soldiers has been dispatched to Kandahar on a month-long assignment to assess whether dozens of military containers are still seaworthy enough to be brought home.

Over 375 shipping containers full of military supplies remain stranded at Kandahar Airfield nearly 18 months after Canada’s withdrawal from the war-torn province, and almost two years since combat operations ceased.

National Defence says the material is considered low priority and that all high-value and sensitive equipment has been returned to Canada.

A spokeswoman for the country’s operational command, Capt. Jennifer Stadnyk, said certification of as many as 150 of the containers has expired and the technical assistance team will have to access whether they can still meet the standards set out by international shipping companies.

Defence sources said if the containers don’t pass, the military will have to find a way to dispose of the material.

  1. Yet another issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the principal focus on knowing things rather than fun. Although, there is an entertainment factor to keep children engaged, each one game is usually designed to focus on a specific skill set or course, such as math or scientific discipline. Thanks for your post.

  2. Some truly nice and utilitarian information on this internet site, too I conceive the pattern has fantastic features.
