Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants to foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971 Film Credits: Canadian Forces Combat Camera video by MCpl Mathieu Gaudreault
Ed Kean used to catch fish. Now he hunts and harvests icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland. Kean does good business selling the huge chunks of ice he harvests. His customers include breweries and distilleries, such as a major Canadian vodka producer. They all want iceberg water because of its purity.

Each spring, the Canadian government authorizes its commercial fishing industry to kill hundreds of thousands of baby seals. They are impaled on hooks, dragged across the ice and cut open—and their pelts are often stockpiled in a warehouse. Our Protect Seals team works year-round to shut down the commercial sealing industry—our Canadian seafood boycott has grown worldwide, we are successfully helping to close global markets for seal pelts, and we are urging Prime Minister Harper to shut down the industry for good with a federal buyout.
The U.S. Coast Guard, with the help of a Canadian navy vessel, says it has made a massive cocaine bust in international waters. The American agency says it has seized about 14.5 tonnes of cocaine. The drugs were seized along Central and South America by the U.S. Coast Guard and the HMCS Saskatoon, which joined the operation in February.

From http://bcfarmsandfood.com/ - This video shows the artisan craft of sea salt harvesting. On Vancouver Island, Jeff Abel of Saltwest Naturals demonstrates how to harvest sea salt using steam evaporation and a unique solar evaporation process. Saltwest is one of a handful of artisan sea salt producers in Canada, and is the only commercial solar sea salt harvester in Western Canada. Using large steam evaporation kettles, the salt harvestry produces artisan flaked fleur de sel, a mineral-rich sea salt with distinctive irregular crystals and a crunchy texture. Flaked sea salt is prized as a finishing salt, which adds flavor to vegetables, eggs, fish and meat, as well as to chocolate and caramel. Saltwest also harvests solar sea salt, a rarity in Canada and the Pacific Northwest, where the...
Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far ric...
In the tiny Arctic hamlet of Igloolik, Nunavut, hunters say a mysterious sound, seemingly coming from the bottom of the sea, is driving wildlife away.

http://www.TravelsWithSheila.com Greenland is the world's largest island and more than 80% is covered in ice. Marine Steve and I embarked on our Quark "In The Footsteps of Franklin" cruise in Kangerlussuaq and prepared to see "who knows what" on the voyage because one never knows what's coming their way. The itinerary is only a reference point to what "may be seen" since the ice conditions in Polar Regions, flora, fauna literally come and go with the flow. The Sea Explorer is a luxury all-suite ship with an ice-strengthened hull that carries 111 passengers and sister to the Sea Spirit which we sailed on during our Spitsbergen cruise. Are you ready? We are...
Conducting helicopter operations from Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) ships is a complex and dangerous procedure requiring the highest degree of safety. Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) has developed a specialized system which has the potential to increase the safety of complex at-sea operations and ensure safer and smoother helicopter landings on RCN ships.

Sea king crash at airshow
Davie Shipbuilding today announced that during the weekend it launched the largest naval vessel ever to be delivered from a Canadian shipyard – on time, to budget and at an internationally competitive cost. Commissioning of all onboard systems began in early September and on the 16th November 2017, the ship will perform its sea-trials prior to achieving Full Operational Capability (FOC). During the sea-trials – overseen by Lloyds Register – the ship’s safety, quality, systems and functionality will be tested against the high military standards and specifications which it has been built to. The build quality and modern design of this ship, with the latest Canadian naval systems, is testament not only to Davie’s experience, infrastructure and unparalleled expertise but also to the incredib...

The months of hard work that totally, 100% paid off. Well done guys!
First successful test of a sea-to-land missile strike by the Royal Canadian Navy. Recently, HMCS Vancouver made history as it became the first modernized Canadian frigate to successfully test surface-to-surface missiles against a shore-based target, utilizing the Harpoon Block II surface-to-surface missiles. This is the first time in history the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) has exercised such a surface-to-surface missile launch capability. The launches were part of a Joint Littoral Training Exercise (JoLTEX.) JoLTEX 16 is a training exercise that was recently completed by the RCN at a United States Navy missile firing range off the coast of California. The Exercise was held from March 30 to April 1, 2016. The capability is designed to fill a need for Coastal Target Suppression, what the milit...
Can't we hear the hurting they are asking
Where is there good in this world
We've seen it in print but there's no one to show it
Will you understand you're not the only ones who suffer
And suffer we will
The cutting wind has its way of killing hope when its so cold
We wonder as we sit around could we be meant for something greater
There's no hope for change when we can't see the needs of others before our own
And now must our faces be set as stone
Always forcing us against each other
So let us be the first to stand and say but not as if we were faultless
That we cant move on unless we forgive
We can forgive
We have to let it go
It's the arrogance we have to let it go
This is our greatest need
