This was a fun little field trip we took after battling the OHIP dragon. It's a lovely and free (donations gladly accepted) self-guided tour of this really cool WWII ship.
"She is the last remaining example of the 27 Tribal Class destroyers built for the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy between 1937 and 1945.
It has been said that The Tribals were "magnificent in appearance, majestic in movement and menacing in disposition". Technologically, they represented the most advanced naval architecture, marine propulsion systems and weaponry of their time.
Once, HAIDA was a mighty fighting ship, sinking more enemy surface tonnage than any other Canadian warship.
Today, she is an irreplaceable historic artifact and her significance has been formally recognized by the Canadian Historic Sites and Monuments Board."

|Don't you understand that Emma would rather be sitting quietly reading her book?|
Why do we subject her to such trivial things?
