News in Review HMCS Toronto: Containing Iraq

From the beginning of the conflict in the Persian Gulf, Canada has had a role to play both militarily and diplomatically. In both regards, the lives of Canadian citizens have been affected and at times endangered. The Canadian Frigate HMCS Toronto, the most modern warship of its class, patrols the Persian Gulf as part of the international force that has imposed and maintains a trade embargo on Saddam Hussein's regime. CBC correspondent Martin Seemungal spent 10 days aboard the ship and has produced this in-depth report for News in Review which examines the day to day realities of the Canadian men and women serving in the Persian Gulf.
