On Thursday evening, the Navy said it had lost confidence in the Lt.-Commdr. David Dallin of HMCS Regina.

The Navy claims to have taken action following an incident that recently occurred on another vessel during maritime training.

Details of what happened were not released.

Commodore David Mazur, commander of the Canadian Pacific Fleet, said in a report that the incident was still under investigation, but involved “inappropriate behavior.”

The Navy says the commander. Meghan Coates has now taken command of HMCS Regina, a Halifax-class frigate based at the Canadian force base in Esquimalt, BC.

“The RCN expects all its members to always exercise institutionally sound judgment, especially when they have a clear leadership or commander’s role,” the Navy said in a report.

The Navy says Dallin will serve in other roles within the Pacific Naval Forces at Canadian power base Esquimalt until the investigation is closed.
