rcaf_77 - Do you know the names/classes and where they were stationed?

Any thoughts on T2K deployment?

The vessel I encountered on Lake Ontario near Toronto was called the Anticosti. This was in 1994. She wasn't very big, but she had guns (20mm on the foredeck and 2 .50's on the bridge wings). She was headed North towards the St. Lawrence at a leisurely 8 knots.

Given the inaccessibility of the lakes to Pact naval forces, it would seem almost impossible for any armed military vessel to remain there during the war. Icebreakers, rescue vessels and the like sure, but nothing with anything heavier than a machinegun or two I'd think. All the bigger, more militarily capable vessels would surely be better utilised where there's an actual threat.

HMCS Anticosti (MSA 110) was an Anticosti-class minesweeper that served in the Canadian Forces from 1989 to 2000. Originally an oil rig support vessel, she was purchased in 1989 and saw service until the entry of the newer Kingston-class coastal defence vessels.

She was one of two the other being HMCS Moresby (MSA 112)
