The MessengerNEWS Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre listens to the orders of the day at a simulation of the war in Afghanistan at Camp Wainwright in Alberta. Poilievre was embedded with the Van Doos, the Royal 22nd Regiment for three days.

Poilievre returns home from Afghanistan war exercise By Bev McRae Pierre Poilievre sits, cramped, inside the light armored vehicle, as the patrol motors towards the scene of a roadside bomb blast. An Afghan police vehicle is in flames. There appear to be several bodies on the ground. Afghanis are shouting and waving the Canadian soldiers over to help. The Nepean-Carleton MP doesnâ€™t understand the language, but fear has no mother tongue. He can feel the tension, sense the danger. Are the strangers police or Taliban trying to lure the soldiers to certain death?
The Canadians ascertain that the Afghanis are police and hurry to offer medical assistance. Poilievre is not in Afghanistan. He is embedded with the famed Royal 22nd Regiment of Quebec, the Van Doos, on a military exercise at CFB Wainwright â€“ an exercise that is as real to the war in Afghanistan as the Canadian Forces can make it. Situated in rural Alberta, CFB Wainwright is the major training area for all Canadian troops deployed to Afghanistan. The landscape is similar â€“ grassy plain and low-lying hills. The military has
constructed Afghan-like villages, an army camp, roads and outposts. Actors of Afghan or Muslim descent who are able to speak Farsi, Dari or Pashto portray Afghan villagers, mullahs, translators. The exercise is so realistic that amputees have been hired to portray the dead and wounded. Thousands of Canadian troops spend six to eight weeks at Wainwright, training for the war in Afghanistan, adapting to the geographical and cultural terrain. The Van Doos and the Fifth Regiment spent the summer are preparing for their deployment
to Panjwaii District in Afghanistan, where Canadian troops fight Taliban insurgents every day for control of the area. â€œThey use six to eight scenarios,â€? said Poilievre, who spent three days at Wainwright, â€œthat are designed to exercise the entire battle group. It could be a reenactment of a meeting with a tribal chief, or reconnaissance to hunt down a person of interest suspected of being Taliban. We got nightly briefings on the profiles of participants and on story lines. Itâ€™s not just target practice.â€?
