It's a USA/Canadian joint operation where specially trained
US Coast Guardsmen deploy aboard Canadian ships (as well as
American ships). The Coasties are the USCG's version of
special forces and have law enforcement and arrest authority.

The reason the Canadian ships have USCG personnel aboard is
due to US and Canadian laws. Canadian law does not allow
interception of vessels in international waters whereby
US law does.

Anyway, this "Mob Reporter" video was recently released
showing parts of the three month deployment. At the very
beginning of the video a USCG person in tactical gear is shown
clearing his firearm. This guy is my grandson, Erik.

He's shown in other clips preparing for boarding of
drug runner's boats and in the rigid hull boats they
use to intercept, board and arrest the drug runners.

Last bit of news: He has been selected for the Coast
Guard's version of Officer Training school and will
end up receiving a commission. Sounds like a lifer
to me.

Here's a link to the video. Pretty cool.

Good for him. That's dangerous work and glad that people are willing to do it.
I see he's on a Kingston Class vessel built right here in Halifax. There's a new one right from the assembly line sitting on the wharf waiting to be launched. Sure looks stubby sitting high and dry.
Our shipyard is waiting for Ottawa to get it's game together so we can also start building the new class of destroyers.
We won the competition fair and square but the usual politics rears it's ugly head with Quebec demanding a bigger and bigger share for their shipyard.

What is the "class" name of the new Canadian destroyers?

One of my "to pass the time" is reading about all the various warships
of different nations. As an old destroyer vet the newer ones are
very impressive.

Congratulations to your son. However, I'm not sure that the war on drugs really makes any sense other than as a feel good exercise. Clearly we are not winning, and vast resources are being expended. As long as demand is there, and it obviously is, supply will find a way just like during prohibition. We need to find a better way to fix this issue.


Wayne, that should be easy. Cap 'em and let Davey Jones sort though em. LOL No repeat offenders that way

Pretty cool, but sinking boats 5000 miles from our borders, seems verging
on piracy.

It is to me also. I thought it was interesting that Canadian law does
not permit it but USA law "sorta" permits it. So, the Canadians skirt
the law by embarking USCG personnel aboard their ships to do the actual
boarding and arresting.
