Actually the fire occured while the ship was running on the surface. Even so look what problems it caused inside that sealed metal cylinder. Next time the Canadian Navy might consider ordering subs with screen doors! Who says screen doors are useless on submarines? Next time one catches on fire they could clear the smoke more readily!

But maybe the point is that we should get our shipyards back into shape and manufacture our own danged submarines!!!!!!

Oh, yeah, right! Our Gordon Campbell doesn't even trust our own shipyards to build our own BC Ferries

I do agree with you.

If you only want three or four and have no plans to become a major sub retailer, building your own can be extremely expensive but as you Canadians are about to join the oil rich, throwing money at the defence industry is as good a way to anounce your arrival as any.

LOL! You're right there

Our culture would never allow it though. Canada isn't a warrior nation and even owning a shotgun will get you ostracized by the community. I won't even go into how we treat our veterans

It just dawned upon me: this is about submarines NOT subwoofers

Geez, I'm slower than an old diesel

Not even a little diesel job for sinking Spanish trawlers? I must say I'm a little suprised given Canada is only a hop skip and a jump over the pole from Russia.
