Frontenac in Duluth ship canal

frontenac220522-110
The Frontenac is owned and operated by Canada Steamship Lines of Montreal. Built in 1968, it was named for the French governor of the French possessions in North America in the late 17th century. He established a government at Quebec. This is the 15th trip here for the boat; each time it loaded taconite, usually at Burlington Northern. It may come in the Duluth entry today to take on fuel before moving over to the BN.
