Darren Fisher (MP Dartmouth-Cole Harbour) in the House of Commons 27 February 2018

Mr. Speaker, as Canada’s oldest warship and the only remaining flower-class
corvette, HMCS Sackville is an important part of Royal Canadian Navy
history. Declared a national historic site in 1988, it serves as a naval
memorial, honouring Canadian sailors who died in the Battle of the Atlantic,
and a museum ship that hosts thousands of visitors at Halifax harbour each
year.

This past January, our government announced its contribution on behalf of
all Canadians toward preserving HMCS Sackville and this important part of
Canadian history. The non-profit Canadian Naval Memorial Trust will receive
a contribution of up to $3.5 million to undertake critical repairs to the
ship. This contribution will ensure the preservation of HMCS Sackville for
the next decade. We are proud of our women and men serving in our Royal
Canadian Navy, and our government is proud to honour their service, past,
present, and future.
