Domtar-owned land is being put to use for activities other than those involved in the making of paper. From May 9th to 12th, nearly 150 Canadian Forces members will be training on land near the municipality of Saint-Hilaire-de-Dorset in the Beauce region, in order to practice their mountain warfare skills.
The Domtar land holds two main advantages for the soldiers of 3 Battalion, Royal Rgiment; it is mountainous and has never before been used for a military exercise. The battalion members will travel mainly on foot and will practice navigation, survival and other field techniques specific to mountain manoeuvres. Only blank ammunition will be used during the exercise, which poses no danger to citizens, or the environment.
