The CCGS Roald Amundsen is a Polar 8 class Icebreaker in service in the Canadian Coast Guard. Originally, it was going to be the second Polar 8-class icebreaker, however the death of former Prime Minister Robert Stanfield caused the Minister of Defense, Romeo Dallaire to rename it the CCGS Robert Stanfield. Afterwards, a second pair of Polar 8 icebreakers would be ordered under the names CCGS John Edward Broadbent and CCGS Roald Amundsen on May 18th, 2007. The Roald Amundsen would be launched on June 23rd, 2009 and commissioned in November that same year.
