Where is Griffon?

I missed the notice. For the first time since 1997, ships won’t be moving along the Welland Canal in March. Griffon will not be leaving Lake Erie,

I don't know it for a fact but it appears as though the Pierre Raddison will be coming to free Lake Ontario from the ice. That would be exciting to see.

Yes, Radisson is on lake Erié, Amundsen will also be going there soon when Edward Cornwallis will take its place in Quebec city. First time i will see the Cornwallis since its was build in Sorel in 1986.
With the Ann Harvey down, Earl Grey and Desgroseillier in refit, the coast guard may be in trouble if ice condition remains severe?

The CWB MARQUIS is now going  through the first lock of the seaway. She will be the first cargo ship of the season.

The tug Sea Eagle II and barge St. Marys Cement II was the first vessel through the locks, receiving the Welland Canal top hat award.

Unfortunately, the lacker CWB MARQUIS, navigating in the ice, went aground at the entrance of the Bauharnois's lock. Authorities are assessing the damage.
