NAVY EX­ER­CISE AIMS TO SHOW UNITY WHILE CURB­ING COVID-19 RISK

Windsor Star - - CANADA -

Canada and some of its clos­est al­lies are launch­ing a ma­jor naval ex­er­cise in the Arc­tic that aim to send a mes­sage of unity with­out spread­ing COVID-19. The three-week train­ing ex­er­cise, launched on Tues­day and known as Op­er­a­tion Nanook, has been a main­stay for the Cana­dian Armed Forces since 2007. This is the first year the U.S., France and Den­mark will be par­tic­i­pat­ing as well. Cana­dian of­fi­cials say this year’s op­er­a­tion will not in­clude any port stops or land ex­er­cises be­cause of con­cerns about spread­ing COVID-19.
