The doubt surrounding the fate of the former HMCS Ojibwa, currently tied up at the Naval Dockyard Annex in Dartmouth has been resolved. Peter Mackay, The minister of Defence, signed an agreement turning over the Sub to the Elgin Military Museum in St. Thomas Ontario.
Onandaga became a museum piece in Rimouski PQ, and Okanagan and Olympus were scrapped last year. Its a shame we chose to save 2 British Boats, But couldn’t be bothered to save HMCS Frasier (or the other 2 Annapolis Class boats) that were designed and built in Canada, and summarily scrapped last year.
UPDATE: The London Free Press is reporting the Tug Florence M is on her way to Halifax from Hamilton to return with the Sub which is scheduled to be Installed on September 8.The Florence M shows an ETA of May 25th for her Halifax arival.
