As long as I can remember while growing up in Port Colborne, the Canadian Coast Guard would dispatch an icebreaker to churn up the ice for passage to and from Lake Erie and the Welland Canal. Here the 234' CCGS GRIFFON which was built in 1970 in Lauzon, Quebec, takes on provisions in Port Colborne in March 2006 while the self-unloaders, CSL ASSINIBOINE, JOHN B. AIRD, and CANADIAN ENTERPRISE sits high in the water waiting for the upcoming canal season to commence.
