Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • The former HMCS Athabaskan has been decommissioned and slated for disposal;
  • The former HMCS Athabaskan served the Royal Canadian Navy with distinction for over 44 years; and
  • The former HMCS Athabaskan is the last of its kind and represents an important piece of Canadian History.
We, the undersigned, Current and ex Military Personnel as well as civilians who want this vessel saved, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to grant the ship status of protection to ensure preservation as a Museum Vessel, to get Athabaskan declared a National Historic Site and have her Preserved in Halifax Harbour and to Honour all the ships that bore the name and as a memorial to those that served in the Cold War and into the Space Age.
