Treonton, Ont. -
The body of a Canadian sailor killed in Afghanistan has arrived back in Canada.
A military plane carrying the body of Petty Officer (second class) Craig Blake touched down at CFB Trenton, in eastern Ontario, this afternoon.
His body will take the familiar route along the Highway of Heroes to the coroner's office in Toronto.
Blake was killed Monday when a roadside bomb exploded west of Kandahar City.
The 37-year-old had been in Afghanistan for only a couple of weeks.
He was the first sailor and 143rd member of the Canadian Forces to die since the Afghan mission started in 2002.
