Hero-Class Vessel - Official Dedication to Service

SAULT STE. MARIE, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Editors Note: There are two photos associated with this press release.

Bryan Hayes, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie, on behalf of the Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, officially welcomed the new Canadian Coast Guard Ship (CCGS) Constable Carriere into service at a ceremony in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario today.

The vessel is named after Constable J.L. Francois Carriere, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Constable Carriere died on November 30, 1997, while conducting an underwater search of a vessel believed to be smuggling illegal drugs. Constable Carriere is listed on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Roll of Honour.

The CCGS Constable Carriere is the fourth of nine Hero Class vessels to join the Canadian Coast Guard fleet. It will be used to support the Compliance and Enforcement program in the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes.

Since 2009, the Government of Canada has delivered several new vessels to the Canadian Coast Guard, including: mid-shore patrol vessels, a hovercraft, search and rescue lifeboats, specialty vessels, near-shore fishery research vessels, environmental barges, and small craft.
