Storm Fiona: More than 100 Canadian military members deployed in each Atlantic Canada province, Anand says

Defence Minister Anita Anand said Tuesday that approximately 150 Canadian Armed Forces members have been deployed in each of the three Atlantic Provinces impacted by post-tropical storm Fiona. Anand said the focus of the military differs in each province, with soldiers in Nova Scotia tasked with removing debris to repair transportation links. In Prince Edward Island, the military is focused on restoring the power grid, and in Newfoundland and Labrador, members are carrying out wellness checks.
