From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Operation Deliverance was a Canadian Forces military operation initiated by the U.N. on December the 3rd, 1992, supported by the United Nations. About 1,400 Canadian troops, a helicopter unit and the war ship HMCS Preserver were involved in the mission. By its end in the May of 1993, it turned into a political disaster for the Canadian Forces and was also marked by a few, low key, protest marches in both Somalia, Kenya and Ohio. This, among other things, caused the disbandment of the Canadian Airborne Regiment in1995 and numerous subsequent dismissals and resignations along the chain of command up to, but not including, the Minister of Defence. Regardless of this, Canada's mission objectives were largely completed including the freeing of a captured Canadian journalist and the defeat of the Somali war lord Mohamed 'Tiger' I. Barre.[1] [2]
