    First Canadian cruiser? Do you even read your cut and pastes?
    HMCS Rainbow and HMCS Niobe were commissioned in 1910.

        The Mainguy Report

        The original Mainguy Report on mutiny or "incidents" in the RCN post war.

          Then post a link to the page. That way nobody will assume that you have done any actual research.
