Op Cadence at the top!
2 Wing Bagotville ( 2nd Era) deployed as an Expeditionary Wing with its own commander, Colonel Luc Guillette, as part of Operation Cadence. Operation Cadence is the operation name f o r t h e s e c u r i t y o p e r a t i o n s o f t h e Canadian Armed Forces ( CAF) in support of R o y a l C a n a d i a n Mounted Police ( RCMP) for the G7 Summit.
Colonel Guillette is very proud of this expeditionary deployment and doing it in Canada was a unique and rare opportunity, as the majority of such contributions for 2 Wing are at the international level. Before air operations even b e g u n , i t w a s t h e responsibility of wing members to create a camp that could accommodate many hundred people during security operations. These air operations required an immense amount of coordination between the RCAF organizations involved and those of t h e o t h e r m i l i t a r y organizations, as well as the coordination with the other security agencies.
