Coast Guard Vessel Out

VOCM is reporting that the CCGS Sir Wilfred Grenfell has been taken out of service. The ship entered cold lay-up last Monday, the crew taken off, spare parts removed, the ship will be out until next April.
Local activist and former Coast Guard employee Merv Wiseman, in his experience, once this happens to a ship they never return to service.

This is another case of the Federal Government downgrading Search & Rescue service in Newfoundland and Labrador, in my opinion and this will continue to endanger the people who make their living from the sea
