HMC Ships Glace Bay and Shawinigan on Op PROJECTION West Africa
By Trident Staff
HMC Ships Glace Bay and Shawinigan are on Op PROJECTION West Africa and their crews recently participated in community relations activities in Porto Grande, Cape Verde. Op PROJECTION West Africa represents Canada’s commitment to maritime security around the world. During the deployment, the crewmembers maintain capacities with drills such as lifesaving drills, and life onboard includes events such as church services presented by the padre.
An exercise component of the deployment has been called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the two ships are now on their way back to Halifax, expected to arrive in mid-April.
