Synopsis

Based on the book of the same name, CLEARING THE WAY documents the true story of 23 Field Squadron, Canadian Combat Engineers, deployed to the Kandahar from August 2006 until March, 2007.  Including first-hand accounts by the soldiers who were there (many of whom are based here in Kingston) the documentary offers a rarely-seen glimpse of the work of specialized Canadian military — from building forward operating bases to constructing roads all while operating in an environment saturated with improvised explosive devices.
