First time in over 10yrs that 3 battle groups were together.

Wonder if HMCS Chicoutimi is part of this, I bet that it is.

And it's a sure bet that you'll never find out if they are or aren't.
Annoying Liberals, apparently I'm doing a good job of it =)

Well, participation in otherwise publicized exercises and informing the public that the boats are in the Ex is not new. It doesn't really affect OPSEC. Heck! Sometimes you even have the sub in the actual Ex. official picture.  ;D

It's actual "operational" deployments that are usually kept quiet.

Probably necessary given all the negative PR the submarine force gets.
