Federal Rideau all tethered down

The Federal Rideau should be coming under the Lift Bridge this afternoon. The Hong Kong flagged salt water ship will be here for about two days loading wheat for Spain. Before coming to the Twin Ports, the Federal Rideau was in Detroit discharging a cargo of steel. This is the ship’s 5th visit to the Twin Ports since it was built in 2000 in Oshima, Japan. Above, the ship was here in November, 2003 to discharge a cargo of lumber at the Port Terminal.
