Do you have a  product  that the Razors Edge should endorse?

Send us lots of free samples and we just might.

After checking out this page you will probably realize that most of the pictures have absolutely nothing to do with the Resolute Barbara Range Liaison Office. Fair enough. However, every defining moment through out the evolution of mankind has had its genesis in infinitesimally immeasurable increments that have on the most part escaped our attention because someone forgot to bring the camera. Do these photographs capture the precursors to catechistic events that will shake the very foundations of the ideologies that define us as human beings?  Probability not, I just thought that I would show off some pictures I took during previous UN tours, operational training in Canada and around the World.


OP STABLE HAITI 1996-1997

Following the American invasion of Haiti to restore President Aristide to power after a military coup led by General Raoul Cedres, the United Nations and the O.A.S. gave Canada the mandate to politically stabilize the country. Our involvement in Haiti began in 1995 and terminated when  China, due to a dispute over Taiwan's massive foreign aid program vetoed extending the mission in 1997 . While in Haiti Canadian troops patrolled and policed Port au Prince and the southern half of the republic, provided security for the President and volunteered many hours of their time on humanitarian aid projects.

EX WELSH TREK April 2000

In April 2000 our British NATO allies made an appeal to the Canadian Armed Forces for volunteers to participate in a treacherous adventure training exercise. Being the selfless person that I am, I immediately dropped everything and promptly stepped forward to fill the void. EX Welsh Trek consisted of an expedition to the summit of Mt. Snowdon (the Highest peak in the UK), exploration of an abandoned slate mine, visits to various Air Defense Unites in the province of Wales, Stonehenge, castles and culminated with a two day stay in London. I know that it must seem like a thankless task , but someone had to do it.

While in Canada certain members of the OP Palladium Crew are employed with the 58th Antiaircraft Artillery Battery located at BFC Valcartier. While so employed our Bty. Has the dubious honor of fulfilling the Low Level Air Defense role for the Land forces Quebec Area and is often called upon support operations in the Land Force Atlantic Area, the Land Force Central Area,  the Land Force Western Area and the Air Defense Artillery School at CFB Gagetown. What dose all that mean? It means we get to travel across Canada a lot.
