Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYDNEY — The pub­lic should ex­pect to see an in­creased mil­i­tary pres­ence in the Sydney area due to a train­ing ex­er­cise tak­ing place in the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity this week­end. Weapons us­ing blank am­mu­ni­tion and a num­ber of mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles will be used as part of the ex­er­cise and as a re­sult there will be a no­tice­able in­crease in noise in the vicin­ity of the train­ing area.

The Cana­dian Forces said in a re­lease is­sued Fri­day that the mil­i­tary con­voys will be trav­el­ling on high­ways and lo­cal roads in the CBRM. “These con­voys will have min­i­mal an­tic­i­pated im­pact on traf­fic,” it reads.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic are asked to fol­low safety in­struc­tions should they ap­proach or en­counter sol­diers and ve­hi­cles dur­ing this train­ing.
