OTTAWA - Canadian troops will be on the move in the next several days to join in the U.S.-led campaign against terrorism.
Defence Minister Art Eggleton announced Monday that more than 2,000 Canadian military personnel will be involved in Canada's contribution.
"Security has changed fundamentally," said Eggleton. "This will be unlike any campaign engaged in before."
