HMCS Vancouver helping earthquake victims

A Canadian frigate is helping with recovery efforts after the earthquake in New Zealand.

HMCS Vancouver was one of many ships visiting New Zealand this week as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of its navy.  The Vancouver arrived off Kaikoura on the south island yesterday and will help in humanitarian efforts in the resort town which has been cut off from the rest of the country. It’ll join American warships in restocking the town with water, fuel and other supplies.
