  • PM delivers remarks in Hamilton
    Just a little quick announcement. Obviously here, I’m here with the family of our famous, most decorated naval commander, Harry DeWolf, all the way down to Darcy, his great grandson. Just touring the Haida that Harry DeWolf served on, about, I should say I know very well, because it was in the TorontoHarbour when I was a boy and I spent many an hour with my friends, chasing up and down on it. We’re here to announce that Harry DeWolf will be the name of the very first of the new Arctic offshore patrol vessels that are being built for the Royal Canadian Navy.
