I got to read before the announcement, a lot of it appears to be re-packaging, CCG has been upgrading for a while under the “World Class” stuff started by the CPC, including radar for Prince Rupert and CCG just installed 44 new or upgraded nav aids in the central coast areas. I know CHS has been upgrading it’s equipment and getting out more. For the new stuff, the release does not exactly say where the tugs will go, now is a good time to lease such equipment, hopefully they find a vessel that can do more than just sit waiting for a call. Hopefully with a A-frame so it can so some buoy work. As for upgrading the towing capacity of existing ships. The simplest fix is to give them some modern towing lines and upgrade the ones equipped with winches. However most are not designed for towing, so it’s unclear what can be done there. As for the new ER base at Port Hardy, there is already a 47’ there, not sure what they put extra there, a boat, skimmer and some containers of response equipment. As for the 4 more SAR stations. Possibly Comox, Hartley Bay, Victoria and likely up the West Coast of the Island.
