BAFFIN ISLAND—Defence Minister Rob Nicholson says the Canadian Armed Forces are watching the changing climate in the North “very, very carefully.”
Speaking to reporters on Baffin Island on Tuesday, Nicholson said the Forces are working with other federal agencies, levels of government, and aboriginal groups to “protect the environment.”
When asked how the military was protecting the environment, Nicholson said simply by “being available if there’s any sort of chemical spill, any sort of disaster of that type, they have to be able to act and co-operate with local authorities.”
