Human Smuggling Exercises
A Canadian Coast Guard vessel escorted another large ship to the Government Wharf.
Waiting were the RCMP, fire trucks, emergency vehicles and Canadian Border Services.
It wasn't a drug sting... but an international exercise simulating a human smuggling operation.
Everyone from The Joint Task Force to the local District Health Authority wanted to make sure they were ready if a migrant ship was discovered off our shores.
Joan Weeks was on the wharf to witness the exercise.
As it got underway, she spoke with some of the key people involved.
