The Canadian frigate HMCS Halifax has been paying a visit to Kingston, Ontario. Bigger pic available if you want it.

She spent last weekend in Montreal. Huge crowds to visit on Sat. and Sund.

Back in the 90s, I was managing the translation service in charge of translating into French the complete Canadian Patrol Frigate Project documentation (specs, manuals, blueprints, etc.) Great experience...

My official CPF tie should still be in my closet somewhere... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Karl_Donitz_Jr, it looks like something out of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, heh.
