Unlike last year, when Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced the annual search two months in advance, there has been little public or political comment, despite prodding, on what might be in the works — until yesterday when Parks Canada quietly updated its website to indicate exploration of the HMS Erebus wreck and the ongoing search for HMS Terror were resuming in the North.
A tweet also went out, saying "It's official, our [underwater archeology] team is going back to the #Arctic!"
