Very informative. Great insight to Canada's history. Takes time but worth it. Fascinating to be able to look into the practicalities of serving in the military in Canada. It's not a piece of cake but hard, hard work.

Yes, there is a small parking area close to the ship, and outside the fences. It gets pretty busy, though.
