IIGR Director Christian Leuprecht has an OpEd in the Globe and Mail on the intergovernmental dimensions of the use of the Canadian Armed Forces to assist civil authorities, arguing that the CAF should reorganize and give the Reserves a civil defence mandate so the Regular Force can focus on Canada’s international commitments.

In his op-ed Dr. Leuprecht says as far as the public is concerned, the military’s away game is discretionary – a distraction used to keep busy when forces are not needed at home.
