News Bulletin and Update

I have heard that there has been a collision in the lower St.Lawrence River, between the icebreaker CCGS Henry Larsen and the bulk carrier Laura I. The incident occurred between Méchins and Cap Chat and resulted in damage to the bulker but only minor scratches to the Newfoundland-based icebreaker.

CCGS Henry Larsen seen from the bridge of the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent at the Dartmouth Coast Guard base in 1991.

More details will be posted when they become available.

January 9 Update
Laura I is due in Halifax mid-afternoon January 10 for survey and possible repairs.
