The St. Lawrence Seaway opened for its 63d navigation season on Monday.
The Canada Steamship Lines bulk carrier MV Baie St. Paul became the first ship of the year to pass through the St. Lambert Lock on Monday, officially kicking off shipping on the key binational waterway connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was on hand to attend a virtual opening ceremony along with Canadian Transport Minister Omar Alghabra and others.
“Moving goods by water through the Seaway ensures trade is flowing freely between the U.S. and Canada while also reducing emissions,” commented Secretary Buttigieg.
