Joint Task Force 2 is a Canadian Special Operations unit responsible for federal counter-terrorism. It was formed in 1993 when the Canadian Forces took control of federal counter-terrorism. JTF2's mission is to resolve potential incidents that could effect Canada's national security.
Even though the unit's primary function is counter-terrorism its role has expanded to fullfill more conventional jobs likened to the British SAS and United States Delta Force.
American: Canada has special forces!?!?!
Canadian: Yep, Joint Task Force 2, it's just not as publicized.
American: God damn, what next!? Canada having a Wal-mart! HA!
