The sub HMCS OJIBWA was towed upbound along the Welland Canal, on Nov.18, 2012. At about 1.10 pm, it passed under the Garden City Skyway and the Homer drawbridge, in St.Catharines, Ontario. The sub was on a journey from Hamilton, Ontario, to Port Burwell, Ontario, on the Lake Erie north shore where, it will become an exhibit with the Elgin Military Museum of Naval History. This is an Oberon-class sub, built at the Chatham Dockyard in England, commissioned into the Royal Canadian Navy in 1965 and decommissioned in 1998. The lead tug was the LAC MANITOBA; the rear tug was the SEAHOUND, and the barge was the HM 8. McKeil Marine and Heddle Marine coordinated and organized the move.
