Two Canadian Forces installations were struck with major communications failures this summer when the military tried to switch telephone, wireless, data, video and Internet services to Telus, the Canadian Press reported this week. Canadian Forces Station Aldergrove, B.C., experienced severe problems in June when the service was switched over. Canadian Forces Base Winnipeg, meanwhile, lost communications for at least six days in August. The Winnipeg base is Canada's NORAD headquarters.
