First to leave this morning (under cover of fog - hence the file photo) was CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent. Now that Canada's largest icebreaker is working on its 2014-2015 fuel budget, it will be able to head where the ice is, instead of sitting idle at the Bedford Institute.
Louis sails in January for a brief foray in the Gulf.
Heading in a far different direction this evening was the cable ship IT Intrepid. The ship had been working on cable repair off Newfoundland and returned to Halifax March 30.
