This is key, since this is the first time so many federal and provincial commands have been brought together in British Columbia (BC) to train and include the consequence management aspect. However, after the initial planning conference was held [2], a smaller TTX format (vice CPX) was decided upon in order to acquaint senior leadership with the complexity of the potential scenarios.
