Canadian troops headed to U.S. survival school for Afghan risks
OTTAWAThe military is seeking security and survival training for Canadian soldiers who must operate outside the wire in Afghanistan, a mission that had been originally been pitched as low-risk.

And they want to give the work to a private American contractor.

The revelations raise questions about why Canada must turn to the United States when a generation of soldiers has gained combat expertise risking life and limb over the last few years in Kandahar.

It also tests the Conservative governments assurance that the more than 900 soldiers involved in the 2011-2014 training mission would be operating largely out of harms way.
