Description:
Bordered by three oceans, Canada's Navy has always needed ships and crew who could brave the harshest of seas to enforce her sovereignty and protect her freedom.

The destroyer has been 'the very finest ship' for such tasks. Their crews may call them tin-cans but these hardy ships have faced off against U-Boats, Gunboats, Sampans and North Atlantic gales. From Ushant to Inchon, from the frigid Atlantic and wide Pacific to the narrow Gulf, they have sailed and fought and shown the flag.

They are the greyhounds of the seas. They are the Tin-Can Canucks.
