Removing Citation Needed[edit]

Removing the 'citation needed' quote from this article. Henry Larsen, the RCMP officer who captained the St. Roch through the North West Passage is sufficiently well known. Any Canadian child who has successfully made it through public school knows this ship and its captain. Since the ship is still kept at the Vancouver Maritime Museum and its history readily available to the public, I can further attest Henry Larsen captained the St. Roch since I've visited the ship in its Museum --LinuxDude 16:34, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, your sworn testimony is not good enough. Putting the tag back in. - TheMightyQuill 22:08, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Hey, they don't make more Canadian than me. My separatist "friends" insult me in a regular fashion for not voting like them, and I still persist in being Canadian. Yet, I had never ever heard of Henry Larsen until I read this article a few days ago. I did my B.A at McGill in History so it isn't as if I never read things on the History of Canada. For more than 20 years of school readings and personal readings all I heard about was captain Joseph-Elzéar Bernier whenever Arctic exploration was written up. I heard, read about the St Roch sometimes but its captain was never mentioned. But the thing that intrigues me but which is never touched on is who or what was the St Roch named after? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.53.214.205 (talk) 16:31, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi all..thanks for the chance to tweak the story..I am the daughter of Special Constable Stan McKenzie, the last surviving crew member of the St Roch..he will be 90 July 1 and we are trying to get all the history recorded correctly..71.7.183.41 (talk) 20:36, 28 January 2008 (UTC) Robyn McKenzie, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia


Hi - I am new here but I am about to bring new content to the ST ROCH piece because my father is T.G. Parsloe famous criminal investigator(in the 30-40's) for the RCMP and explorer on the ST. ROCH - maiden voyage in the late 20's

Stay tuned for prose, photos, and original excerpts Dparsloe (talk) 03:46, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
