Canadian submarine, pennant number SSK 877, will re-enter the water today.
HMCS Windsor will be lowered into Halifax harbour today after spending five years in dry dock for an extensive refit that cost $45 million in 2010 alone.Labour costs included.
Former naval officer Ken Hansen said the clock is running to get HMCS Windsor and the other troubled submarines into the water.Ken, Ken, Ken!! No. It's a 20-year old boat, fer chrissakes, and it just spent five years being reassembled and having "power by Lucas" purged.
"The navy needs to prove that it can actually administer and successfully manage this program," he told CBC News on Tuesday.
"If the problems of the past continue to manifest themselves, the government will lose patience and Canada, I believe, will be out of the submarine game forever."
What makes you think we're still in the game now?
