Canada to Get 6 CG Vessels for $324m

Friday, April 13, 2007
The Canadian government will reportedly spend $324 million to purchase six new vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard, according to a report on www.cbc.ca. The vessels will reportedly include four midshore patrol vessels, one offshore science vessel and one hovercraft. Three of the vessels are bound for British Columbia, two are destined for Nova Scotia and one will go to Quebec. All six will be built in Canada, which should boost the country's shipbuilding industry. In addition to the six new vessels, Hearn said the coast guard will spend $17 million to buy a high-speed air cushion vehicle that will be used in search and rescue services in Quebec. Including this latest $324-million announcement, the federal government has now spent $750 million on the coast guard since February 2006, purchasing a total of 16 new vessels. (Source: www.cbc.ca)
