Graham says a destroyer and two frigates in Halifax should be in a position to leave in three or four days and would carry transformers, divers, small boats and helicopters. The minister says Canadian military officers continue to discuss possible needs with their U.S. counterparts, but stressed that no request has been made. Water purification units and other supplies have been offered and Graham says all bases are being covered so that Canada can move immediately should the call for help come. Graham says he's been consulting with Prime Minister Paul Martin and Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan, who is chairing a cabinet committee on aid response. Graham made his comments in Moscow where he's meeting with his Russian counterpart. http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2005/09/02/1199575-cp.html More here: http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2005/09/02/1199575-cp.html http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2005/09/02/1199612-cp.html Them thar Canadians are aaaaalllllllright!
