OTTAWA - A crew member of a Canadian warship has been found dead while on shore leave in the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean.
The military has identified him as Lt. Andrew F. Webster, based out of Halifax.
Webster was serving on board HMCS Toronto, which has been part of counterterrorism and anti-piracy operations in the Arabian Sea for most of this year.
The Department of National Defence says Webster was found dead in his hotel room on Thursday afternoon.
The military says local police are handling the investigation but say the death is non-combat related and foul play is not suspected.
Defence Minister Rob Nicholson is offering his condolences to Webster's family.
Canada has a “warship”? What for.
Tip for inspectors, investigate his crew.
dumb asss,that crap is no longer amusing,
You know...many, many Canadians have died fighting for freedom, including in Afghanistan, in recent years.
And that’s how you show your appreciation?
Maybe you should tell the families of these people that their sacrifices are in vain:
Frankly, it never was. Thanks, Canada.
They have several, and during WWII, world’s second largest navy. It’s surrounded by water.
started to look at the list, I can’t, I can’t even see. I knew so many, many were such good friends. Gomez for example, he was days away from home and retirement. He was ex 2 Commando in the airborne, then when I met him we were in 2PPCLI together (2nd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry). The amount of guys we lost is high to the size of our forces.
Then I get angry at our current state of affairs and wonder what the hell we are doing sacrificing ourselves for.
Betchya you end up apologizing for that one.... ;^)
You guys are awesome. Eagles up!
Particularly his liberty buddied to find out how much he had to drink that night.
Oh, I agree. Especially with the current ROE.
And thank you for your service, from a grateful American!
