Naming the New Frigates

13 July 2018. David Dunlop. Don’t know if the Type 26 Frigate will win the bidding process after the 'curing' process on July 21, but if the LM/BAE Type 26 does, here are the class and ship names I believe would be appropriate for each coast. I believe the first ship should be named for our country, and the second ship for when our country first became of age (as Vimy Ridge is considered sacred Canadian ground):
“Canada Class” Type 26 Frigates:
Halifax Based:
HMCS CANADA-FFH 380-East; HMCS VIMY RIDGE-FFH 381-East; HMCS ONTARIO-FFH 382-East; HMCS QUEBEC-FFH 383-East
HMCS NOVA SCOTIA-FFH 384-East; HMCS NEW BRUNSWICK-FFH 385-East; HMCS PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND-FFH 386-East
HMCS NEWFOUNDLAND-FFH 387-East

Esquimalt Based:
HMCS NUNAVUT-FFH 388-West; HMCS SASKATCHEWAN-FFH 389-West; HMCS MANITOBA-FFH 390-West
HMCS ALBERTA-FFH 391-West; HMCS BRITISH COLUMBIA-FFH 392-West; HMCS YUKON-FFH 393-West
HMCS NORTHWEST TERRITORIES-FFH 394-West
