Rocky Mountain Rangers return to Prince George

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Prince George is getting a new Army Reserve unit. As part of an Army Reserve expansion project the new unit, which is a detachment of the famous Rocky Mountain Rangers, is planned for the city as early as September this year. read the rest of the article.

I think this is excellent news, there is a large pool of recruits that the Army Reserves can tap into in Northern BC, many of them already have significant outdoor skill sets which they can bring to the job. Also southern reserve units were losing people that had to move up north to follow work. I would also like to see a Combat Engineer troop established there as well.
