They might as well also rename the Asterix as HMCS Provider if they're talking about bringing back the Protecteur class names.

War of 1812 names for Joint Support Ships are history – Protecteur and Preserver are the new names

The Royal Canadian Navy has jettisoned the names selected by the previous Conservative government for its new joint support ships and will revert to calling the vessels by the names of the previous supply ships.

The new ships will be called HMCS Protecteur and HMCS Preserver, to honour the service of those two ships over the years.

The Conservative government’s decision to name the joint support ships after War of 1812 battles never sat well with navy officers, according to defence sources.

The navy announced Tuesday that the vessels will instead be known as Protecteur-class ships.

(...SNIPPED)

if the RCN buys the ship not lease it then they might rename it HMCS Provider.

really speaks volumes of the culture of the CAF.... lack of creative though and always back to the good old days instead of being progressive.
Have they no famous naval personnel to name them after?

I think that keeping up the traditional names is not a bad idea.
