"RCMP Arctic Patrol Ship St Roch - About The Ship"

In 1940, the St. Roch set out from Vancouver B.C., on a secret mission through the Northwest Passage. On that voyage , the St. Roch combined its normal supply mission with a deliberate assertion of Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic. Due to heavy ice conditions, the ship spent two winters frozen in Arctic waters, finally reaching Halifax on 11 October 1942. The voyage claimed the life of one crew member.
