Maybe they are in the area to help out with the flooding like someone already mentioned. I live in Winnipeg and they are all over Manitoba right now because of the flooding here. Speaking of which i can't believe the amount of water coming this way! The city of Brandon which is south of here (where the Shilo military base is actually) is completely flooded out, however it's amazingly still safe due to all the sandbagging the city/province had begun to put in place months ago. They knew it was going to be bad this year so the province began sandbagging last November, and offered to subsidize everyone living in flood ways to buy sub pumps if they didn't already have one, or if they did have one they could upgrade it - that was a nice touch on behalf of the gov I thought.
The US gov could learn a thing or two.... instead of being unprepared, force evacuating towns at the last minute. Cairo, Ohio was given 6 hours to leave town by force - the police/US military went door to door making sure everyone was out according to the news - before they blew up the Birds Point levee. Sounds fishy to me.... Kick everyone out town so they blow up a levee at night when no one is around, and it's dark out so no one could see exactly what they were doing either..... shady...
Last week Manitoba was hit with an extra 2 ft of water but again so far everything is okay in southern Manitoba. It hasn't crested here in Winnipeg yet, and the 3 rivers running threw the city are already almost at road level. We had our 'flood of the century' in 1997 so only time will tell what this year's flood will be like. The city of Brandon has already declared this years flood to be their flood of the century, and apparently it's the worst in over 300 years.
So what is that Madrid fault line going to blow? I mean the US military already ruined 133, 000 of farmland by blowing up Birds Point levee in Ohio, now there's that news about Obama's new decision to blow up so more levee's taking out a few cities, and flooding out 3 nuclear plants, all to save a oil refinery. Plus the Gulf of Mexico is toxic. Everyone knows now the water is poison and people are dropping like flies down there from the chemicals. Sounds to me like the US Gov has literally and IS going out of it's way to f*ck you guys over by poisoning all your land. Thank god the Mississippi is so full it gas started flowing back south so we won't get as MUCH toxic/radioactive water flowing up here.
Oh see I got off track there.... I meant to say that maybe Canadian soldiers are in the US for the FEMA exercise as we do have our own counterpart here in Canada to FEMA, but ours is named the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness as of 2003 when it was established as the Canadian `wing` of FEMA. (prior to 2003 is was a much smaller agency called the Public Safety Canada).edit on 13-5-2011 by loagun because: (no reason given)

Like I was saying before all of that nonsense, Canadian Forces personnel due for deployment in-theater go through an acclimatization period to get used to hot weather in the southern states before deploying to the 'Stan or anywhere else in the with an arid climate that we have personnel posted in. We also have training-exchange programs in place.edit on 13/5/2011 by xXxinfidelxXx because: (no reason given)
So then do you have any knowledge of them being in Missouri, or Illinois, or Ohio, states that the OP ask about? (These are not really 'southern states')
Would Canadian troops have any reason to be part of a used force in the U.S. IF the New Madrid fault (or some man-made disaster) occurred?edit on 13-5-2011 by Tecumte because: text correction
I don't know about the other states, but I do have personal knowledge of them being in Missouri and Kansas. As well as Az, GA, TX and a military base in Landstuhl Germany. Oh and while I was not assigned to the post, just staying there on leave, I saw them on the small military post in Vicenza Italy.
