All that means is that we'll waste even more money on icebreakers keeping Montreal open!

And Sept Isle, and Cornerbrook, and Summerside, and Botwood, and keep the ferry running to Magdelines. It is all part of the job.

Saying that, with the still nights, the lake is freezing in front of my place...frecken depressing I tell you.

In the process of going from Superior to Quebec (seaway now) and I must say, compared to last year the weather is grand so far.
Was in Quebec last on the 4th-5th and it wasn't bad, though I'm sure there is going to be a lot of difference when we get there in 2 days.
