Canadian Leader nears season end

The Canadian Leader will leave here after discharging cement (above) to load grain in Thunder Bay for transfer to a salt water ship near the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It will then load iron ore in Port-Cartier for Hamilton, Ontario and maybe one more load of grain, perhaps out of Toledo. Then it will load sugar in Quebec for Toronto where it will go into winter layup. The sugar will be discharged as needed over the winter by Redpath Sugar. A last load such as this is called a storage load.
