[CONFLICT] Reinforcing Guyana

While we had hoped that the Portuguese-led peace talks would prove productive, the URSA representatives had refused our only two demands, and have further lost our trust, lying about the location of nearby military bases, in our attempt to ease the concern of Guyanese Canadians.

We had hoped to ease the fears that an invasion of Guyana could take place by encouraging URSA to remove it's military Boa Vista Air Force base, a base only 50 kilometres away from the Guyanese border, but instead the URSA representatives denied the existence of this base and refused to cooperate.

Unfortunately, this plays our hand. The Canadian Forces will be once again starting up non-permanent rotations of forces to CFB Georgetown, the main CF base in Guyana, to reassure Canadians that we will not tolerate any sort of military act against our nation.

To ensure the security of Guyana, the 3rd Infantry Division will be deployed to Guyana, for a period of one year. (October 2035-September 2036). Once their deployment is over, they will be replaced by the 1st Infantry Division, also on deployment for one year (October 2036-September 2037). The 1st Infantry Division will be reinforced with several other Canadian Forces units, including elements of the 4th Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, the Royal Canadian Air Force, the 48th (Reserve) Infantry Brigade, and CANSOFCOM.
