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.

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.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
