A nuclear fallout bunker is named after him. Now former prime minister John Diefenbaker is about to get another honour. During his Arctic trip last week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper revealed that Canada's new $720-million icebreaker will be named after the country's 13th prime minister. The icebreaker is scheduled to be completed by 2017 to replace the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent.
