HMCS Regina, based at CFB Esquimalt, will set sail for the Arabian Sea in January as part of Canada’s participation in a multi-national anti-terrorism patrol.

Canadian warships first joined the patrol in May 2012. Earlier this week Ottawa announced an extension of Canada’s participation in the operation.

HMCS Toronto and her Halifax-based crew of 250 are on duty now in the region.

The aim of the patrol, dubbed Operation Artemis, is to stop suspect shipping in the Horn of Africa.
