HALIFAX – A new exhibit will be added today to the Titanic exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax.

To commemorate the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the luxury liner, a copy of the original 1912 report into the sinking will be added to the museum’s permanent exhibit.

The report was the product of an influential British investigation used by the Cunard Line to upgrade the safety standards for its fleet.

RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic early on April 15, 1912.

The sinking claimed the lives of 1,500 of the ship’s 2,200 passengers.
