Flexible plastic pouches hold drinking water. Easier to roll and ship than tanks.

The Canadian Forces are training outside of Inuvik this summer. By August, 600 people could be involved. The event is called Operation Nanook and the main part is setting up a camp outside Inuvik.

Local businesses have been appreciating the presence of military staff, as they come into the town to buy coffee and snacks.

Operation Nanook will tie into some kind of emergency simulation later this year.
