These were the opening lines in a National Post article today
(March 27,2013).

It was Canada's turn to provide air protection for Iceland which
has no military but is still part of NATO.

Note the last line. I didn't add the quote marks; they were
already in the article. I did add the underline re DND however.

With no air force of its own, for the next five weeks the only
thing guarding Iceland from air invasion will be a sextet of
Canadian fighter planes.

In mid-March, six CF-18s and more than 160 Canadian Forces
personnel* bunked down at a Cold War-era base just outside
Reykjavik to kick off Operation Ignition, a periodic mission in
which Canada takes its turn defending the island nation, which
is the only NATO member without a single soldier or pilot on the
payroll.

Canadians will monitor radar, escort "unauthorized" aircraft out
of Icelandic airspace and practice scrambling jets to "intercept
and identify unknown airborne objects", according to a statement
by the Department of National Defense.

* Lee Childs, a British author of the popular Jack Reacher books
about a Retired  American Military MP remarks in one of his
books that the Canadian Army is four guys with a dog. I stopped
reading his books after that. A Brit ought to know better than
that. 160 troops is less than the number of Canadian soldiers
killed in Afghanistan so far.
