Peace and Peacekeeping

I am proud of Canada's role as a peacekeeping nation. Yes, we have soldiers who (regrettably) understand how to fight a war, but our major role post-WWII has seemed to be in maintaining and even trying to create peace.

Why is it that when you go to the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces (DND/CF) website and click on the site map, you cannot find any mention of the word 'peace' and 'peacekeeping'?

I think this is something that needs correcting. DND/CF should have a Desk of Peace Studies or a Directorate of Peacekeeping.
