Louis S. St-Lauerent - off to the Saguenay

1. Louis runs through a snow squall in the Narrows.

CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent sailed this morning for the Saguenay River. After trials in Bedford Basin yesterday, the ship took on more bunkers at anchorage, from Algoma Dartmouth last evening.
It remained at anchor in the Basin over night and "upped anchor" about 1030 hrs, in the midst of a brief snow squall. They can expect much worse when they reach the Saguenay, with fierce weather predicted in the next few days.
2. Once into the lower harbour they were in the clear.
