News in Review Canada's Newest Submarine

Canada still uses submarines to patrol its offshore territory, primarily for fighting illegal drug trafficking and immigration, and for other uses related to the fisheries and covert operations. As key military equipment in the Second World War particularly, submarines have always been an essential part of the Canadian navy. In this report, CBC correspondent Dan Bjarnason is aboard HMCS Windsor, a new non-nuclear sub, on its voyage from Britain to Halifax. An inside look at the operations of this sub highlights military and technological expertise, but is also a microcosm for teamwork in highly technical and confined situations.
