yes but how big is the canadian army?
regular about a div minus. So them sustaining multiple deployments is difficult. Added to the fact that Canadian Govts are Notorious in cutting defence spending.
Will look at some of the international forums and see whats being said there.

Unfortunately, the CF can barely support a brigade group on peacetime exercises for longer than 3 weeks - so on ops there's no hope! When I was in the CF, we had to borrow the Maryland Air National Guard just to fly us around our own camp for heli-ops! And considering this was on one of the bases that does all the CF helicopter flight training...
