Come and meet the Royal Canadian Regiment – enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Latvia. Saturday, 5 May 2018, Location: Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre, 4 Credit Union Drive, Toronto.

Local Latvian and Baltic communities in Toronto were cordially invited to come and meet members of the RCR - Royal Canadian Regiment, Petawawa; and displayed military equipment. Organised event was an excellent opportunity for the Latvians in Canada to express their support to troops before the next rotation of Canadian Army unit is deployed this summer to Latvia where Canada leads the NATO – enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group. Together with other nations, Canadians strongly defend NATO Latvian borders and stand for our common values. A Member of Parliament, Peter Kent PC from the Conservative Party made his address to Latvian community and representatives of Canadian Armed Forces.
