The entire article as it stood before my edit was a lame rehash of Canada's military history. It had nothing to do with the history of the institution. I've changed that, but obviously the article is lacking in detail now. Suggest some stuff on the Kennedy Board be added as well as the Restructuring committees of the 1990s.Michael Dorosh 17:58, 14 June 2006 (UTC)


Someone should contribute more on Canada's current war in Afghanistan. I'm probably not the person to do it, but surely it merits a seperate article (its the most Canadian combat deaths since Korea) as well as some coverage on this page. Wyldkat

It's already in a seperate article, but it has nothing to do with the history of the Army as an institution really and is quite irrelevant to this article. See Canada's role in the invasion of Afghanistan.Michael DoroshTalk 02:52, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

I think it's a bit appalling that this page doesn't even mention Vimy Ridge once. What's going on here? Parsecboy 00:41, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Nile Expedition[edit]

I have to question the inclusion of the 1884 Nile Expedition in this article. The Canadians involved in the Sudan were enlisted in the British Army, they were not established and maintained as a Canadian military unit. They are a related topic but not directly pertinent to this artice as it stands. Mediatech492 (talk) 19:52, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Actually, according to the Nile Expedition article, they were not enlisted in the British Army; they were civilian employees of the British Army, not inducted as soldiers. A mention of them is probably appropriate in Military History of Canada, as the first group of Canadians to ship overseas to a war zone, but not in this article as the expedition had almost no effect on the development of the Canadian Army.
