xx HMCS Calgary CO & XO relieved of duty

Per Times Colonist:


Change in command for HMCS Calgary; another officer disabled ship’s smoke detector

 HMCS Calgary has undergone a change in command after evaluation of the ship’s performance during sea-readiness trials.

Cmdr. Alex Barlow took over HMCS Calgary last week, replacing Cmdr. Jonathan Kouwenberg, said Army Lt. Chelsea Dubeau, public affairs officer for Canadian Maritime Forces Pacific.

Dubeau said senior officers decided a change in the ship’s leadership was necessary to reach performance levels required during overseas deployment.

 HMCS Calgary’s second-in-command was also relieved of duty after disabling a smoke detector in the wardroom, smoking tobacco and encouraging assembled subordinates to do likewise while the ship was in San Diego. The officer was found guilty of three counts of behaviour contrary to good order and discipline and fined $3,000.

HMCS Calgary, one of five frigates based in Esquimalt with Maritime Forces Pacific, is being prepared for deployment to the Asia-Pacific region this spring.

Canadian Navy officials have said these overseas deployments, lasting about six month each, are meant to demonstrate and affirm Canada’s presence in the Pacific and its ongoing commitment to its allies.

During exercises such as the ongoing Operation Projection, Canadian Navy ships work with their counterparts from other Pacific nations, including Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.

In the past, deployments have included goodwill visits to foreign ports, emergency disaster assistance and enforcing the United Nations embargo of North Korea.

xx Consolidated Seamanship Training Facility (CSTF) at CFB Halifax

January 23, 2020, 00:16:17 by OceanBonfire

"I was luckey enought to get a quick peak today of the new #cfbhalifax Consolidated Seamanship Training Facility (CSTF) located by the Stad main gate. So much more than a replacement drill shed, it will incorporate offices, small and large classrooms, a theatre...

a container inspection trainer, reconfigurable 3 deck training area with breaching doors to support NBP training, rapel wall, and so much more. The finishing touches are almost done, and NFS(A) will start to move in soon. Training will take a giant leap forward this summer."

xx Documentary - 2014 Fire in Protecteur

December 09, 2019, 13:40:26 by stoker dave
Below is a link to a documentary produced by DND describing the response and aftermath to the 2014 engine room fire. The documentary is largely based on interviews with those that were there:  CO, XO, EO, Cox'n, stokers, etc. 

Overall, an interesting and compelling story.  Note that it runs for about one hour.

clip Decommissioning of Stad Gym

October 10, 2019, 18:52:45 by orca73
Back in October 2018 the Stad gym was closed permanently due to too much damage to the roof to repair.
Last month, the construction gates were placed around the building and deconstruction inside the building began.
After work this afternoon, this is what I saw as I based the gym; deconstruction fully underway.
