Imagine running a 3,500 km snowmobile patrol, covering four provinces from Kitimat, BC to Churchill, MB, demonstrating the unique skill set of the Canadian Rangers in Canada’s harsh wilderness. All in a day’s work for the Canadian Rangers.
Living up to their motto “Vigilans” (Watchers, in Latin), the Canadian Rangers are the eyes and ears of the Canadian Armed Forces in the country’s remote, isolated, and coastal areas. Rooted in more than 200 communities across Canada, the Canadian Rangers conduct sovereignty and security patrols, search and rescue operations, and natural disaster assistance. Join us as we share artifacts and hear firsthand stories of their history and activities from retired Captain Daryl Bazin CD.
UP CLOSE: Stories, objects, and ideas from beyond the galleries is RAM’s newest talk series. Beginning on March 20, 2020, we invite you to join our museum experts and learn about research and collections projects, meet special guests, and get up close with history!
