April 5, 2013 — Weather Network's Mark Robinson headed to north of Cochrane, Ontario to embed himself with the Canadian Forces for a few days to document their army exercise called Trillium Response. Take a look at his adventures!
During the last ten years, the bulk of the training for the Canadian military was focused on the Afghanistan environment.
