HMCS Fredericton arrives in Hamilton, Ont.

On Sept.7, 2010, the patrol frigate HMCS Fredericton sailed into Hamilton Harbour, docking at Pier 8, right next to the retired HMCS Haida. (click on photos to enlage)above: the Palace condos in Burlington can be seen in the right distance.

above: the bows of the Fredericton, left, and the Haida. I wonder whether these two vessels had ever met previously.
