In an effort to bolster anti-terrorism capabilities in the Philippines, the government has shipped 300 chemical and biological protective suits to military officials in the Asian country, and Canadian personnel will be sent to help with training, the Ottawa Citizen reported Monday.

It is the second time Canada has donated such gear.
