2 Canadian warships collide en route to Hawaii – Canada – CBC News

Two Canadian warships are arriving back in port in Esquimalt, B.C. today after colliding during training exercises while en route to Hawaii.

Trainees on the ships were in the midst of towing exercises, which require close-quarters manoeuvring, when the collision occurred at around 11 a.m. PT Friday morning.

No one was hurt, but HMCS Algonquin sustained significant damage to her port side hangar while HMCS Protecteur sustained damage of a lesser degree to her bow.
