International brass to visit 5 Wing Goose Bay

The air base in central Labrador is preparing to host some top international military officials.

Delegates from eight different countries are heading to Happy Valley-Goose Bay next week.

The talks will not focus on the future of 5 Wing Goose Bay, but instead on a variety of issues common to Arctic neighbours.

The issues include search and rescue as well as aboriginal concerns.

Because of the meetings, security is being heightened at the base.
