In the wake of the tragic helicopter accident that cost the lives of three crew members working aboard the CCGS Amundsen in the Arctic Ocean, the NDP would like to offer its deepest condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of Mr. Marc Thibault, Commanding Officer of the CCGS Amundsen, Mr. Daniel Dubé, helicopter pilot, and Dr. Klaus Hochheim, Arctic scientist affiliated with the University of Manitoba. The three crew members bravely served our country in the harshest environment, performing vital scientific research and other Coast Guard duties. We will forever be grateful for their service to our country and for their important contribution to Arctic research.
