Sadder still, that VDQ is less broken than MON at the moment.  And VDQ is hurting.  Bad refit.

My son works there, he was disgusted at the MLR refit done to VDQ.  One of the old timers said it was the worst job he'd ever seen in all his years at ISI.  If it's unacceptable by even Irving standards, then it must have been shit.

So could someone please advise me where exactly in Toronto can I visit HMCS Ville de Quebec? The post only says that the ship will be visiting at Canadian port cities along the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes and the Toronto date is September 13th to 18th.

From http://torontoist.com/2016/09/what-to-check-out-in-toronto-september-12-18/

The Toronto International Film Festival brings all sorts of guests to our city. This year, that includes the Royal Canadian Navy. Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship Ville de Québec, or the VDQ as the Canadian Patrol Frigate is affectionately known, is docking here this week on its first Great Lakes tour since 2012. A news release is expected on Tuesday detailing the ship’s full schedule; part of its visit includes day sails with dignitaries and VIPs. But Torontoist has learned that the ship will definitely be open for public tours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 15, and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 17, so you’ll have an opportunity to snap a selfie of yourself in the captain’s chair, just like the stars might. Sugar Beach (25 Dockside drive), September 13 to 18, FREE.

They seem to have the days/dates messed up, but at least you have the location.
