Fort McMurray in Alberta Canada has been in the news lately, heavily damaged by a windswept fire that forced all the town’s citizens to flee their homes. Thirteen years ago, the heavy lift ship Stellanova arrived Duluth to discharge heavy equipment onto rail cars that then went up to Fort McMurray where the heavy equipment was used in the development of their oil sands project.
