Canadian Coast Guard welcomes first icebreaker in 25 years

563 CGCS Captain Molly Kool

 

The Canadian Coast Guard has welcomed the CCGS Captain Molly Kool to its fleet in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. The vessel is the first of three that will be added to the fleet. To support future shipbuilding and attract more jobs to our communities, the Government also announced the intention to add a third Canadian shipyard, to be selected through a competitive process. The CCGS Captain Molly Kool will provide essential icebreaking services to ensure safe navigation, prevent ice jams and flooding, and maintain shipping routes. It is equipped to respond to search and rescue calls, and to provide aids to navigation and environmental responses.
