HMCS Calgary recently came out of refit from a mid-life upgrade and modernization Frigate Equipment Life Extension programme. The crew were happy to show off their new ship to both Miss Canada winners. They were taken to the flight deck, operations room and the bridge for a chance to see how Calgary runs and what the ship’s crew do at work.
