MONTREAL: A Canadian Coast Guard helicopter crashed on Monday in the McClure Strait off the coast of Banks Island in the Northwest Territories, killing all three people on board. The dead are the pilot, Daniel Dube; Marc Thibault, the commander of the icebreaker Amundsen from which the helicopter took off; and University of Manitoba researcher Klaus Hochheim. The helicopter had left the Amundsen—stationed in the Beaufort Sea—as part of a scientific mission studying climate change and marine ecosystems.
