Public Service Announcement: Military Vehicles Travelling from Exercise STALWART GUARDIAN 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 26, 2015) - The public is advised to expect a high volume of Canadian Armed Forces vehicles on Ontario roads on August 29-30, 2015. These vehicles will be departing from Garrison Petawawa following the completion of Exercise STALWART GUARDIAN 2015 to units across Ontario.

Drivers are asked to be patient and cautious as the convoys will comprise civilian pattern and military pattern trucks, light armoured vehicles, chartered buses, and transport trucks. These convoys may cause significant congestion as they transit south and south-west, in particular along Highways 11S, 60W and 41S.

Canadian Army personnel from across Ontario have been conducting military training in the Garrison Petawawa training area, from August 15 to 30, 2015, as part of Exercise STALWART GUARDIAN 2015. Exercises such as STALWART GUARDIAN are an important way to develop and maintain critical skills and be prepared to assist Canadians when and where military help is needed.
