Canadian Military builds camp to house surge of asylum seekers at Quebec border (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

The Canadian military is building a camp near the United States border to accommodate the influx of asylum seekers crossing into Quebec.

The camp will accommodate up to 500 people in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Que., and consist of "modular tent shelters with floors, lighting and heating," the Armed Forces said in a statement Wednesday.

"Setting up tents, this is something obviously we're quite familiar with, we're pretty good at doing this," said Maj. Yves Desbiens, the spokesperson on the ground for the Canadian Armed Forces.

"But in terms of these capacities, this is not something we do often."

The camp is located on a converted private campsite, close to where asylum seekers are being processed by the Canada Border Services Agency.
