“Operation Nanook” is the name of this photo showing two of the Canadian Warships in St.John’s Harbor.
A number of navy vessels which are in St. John’s preparing for the largest arctic sovereignty mission ever, will depart Friday morning.
The Canadian patrol frigate HMCS St. John’s, two maritime coastal defence vessels — the HMCS Moncton and HMCS Summerside — and the United States Coast Guard cutter USCGC Willow will head to the icy north about 8 a.m. tomorrow.
The six week mission called Operation Nanook, will spend about 10 days in the harsh arctic environment practicing search and rescue and other operations.
The mission will include a mock maritime emergency as well as a drill to practice what would happen in the event of a major air disaster in the arctic several federal agencies, including the Departments of Environment and Public Safety, will also play parts in the operation as will the Royal Danish Navy.
