Canadian Navy Participates in Frontier Sentinel 2010

TLANTIC OCEAN - The Canadian navy Kingston-class maritime coastal defense vessel HMCS Glace Bay (MM 701) participates in exercise Frontier Sentinel 2010. An estimated 2,500 Canadian and U.S. military personnel and government civilian agencies are participating in the annual training exercise, which involves the coordinated detection, assessment and response to a mining threat in Hampton Roads that would impede both commercial and military traffic in the Chesapeake Bay. The exercise also tests the response of military and civil authorities to a vessel that may be carrying a potential weapon of mass effect.
