Upbound Tankers on the Move

There are 2 upbound tankers currently near Iroquois Lock. Earlier in the day, they had received an escort from the Canadian Coast Guard's Griffon. That vessel has since headed back east to meet up with Algoma Guardian.

The Seaway is currently operating in daylight hours only. The tankers will likely drop anchor for the night at Prescott, according to a source.

Both tankers are "ice class" vessels and capable of navigating through icy conditions.

Ice remains heavy, especially between Massena and Montreal.
