One of Canadaís most high-tech warships visited St. Johnís on April 30. The HMCS Fredericton made the capital city its first port of call since returning from anti-piracy duty off east Africa. Many of the frigateís crew are Newfoundlanders and were reunited with their families on the waterfront. The Department of National Defence took the opportunity to announce a $3-4 million contract with Northstar Network Ltd., a local engineering firm, to upgrade the vesselís computers.
