The Canadian military is joining Britain, the U.S. and Australia in a new surveillance mission to monitor ship-to-ship transfers of oil and other goods to and from North Korea in violation of UN sanctions.

Canada is sending about 40 support personnel and a long-range patrol aircraft, a CP-140 Aurora, to the U.S. military's Kadena air base on Japan's southern island of Okinawa, a spokesperson for the Canadian defence department confirmed in a statement on Saturday.

The aircraft and personnel are from Canadian Forces Base Comox in B.C.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan also issued statements saying the aim of Canada's participation in the operation is to "counter North Korea's maritime smuggling in accordance with relevant UNSC resolutions."

How long before the bloat creeps in?

40 crew det, I’m sure we can turn this into a full blown 250 personnel det.

Depends on whether a medal is authorized or not. If it is, you'll need a full headquarters on top of the 40 man det.

We'll start with an all-up ATF HQ (most of who won't know what LRP even stands for...) that includes at least  3 Official Visits Officers (min rank - Major).

Don't forget the GBA+ advisor. Of course, after 1500L other than aircrew flying you will find only a duty officer, a couple MPs, and some undesirables in the Int cell. Everyone else will be at trivia night or fraternizing.

haha!

Well for now it's just an "ops normal" LRP Det.  Hopefully, it stays that way.

Happy Hunting Demons!
