March usually brings the Coast Guards sole Heavy Icebreaker the CCGS Louis St. Laurent into port. The ship arrived overnight, and anchored in the basin. With the end of the federal governments fiscal year coming, the fleet looks to be transferring fuel.
The CCGS Edward Cornwallis is due to undergo refit in Shelburne at the end of the month, so it makes sense to transfer off unneeded fuel to another vessel.
the CCGS Sir William Alexander also entered port, and this morning, and after waiting of BIO took to Anchorage 11 in the Basin. If the William Alexander moves alongside the LSL, it would suggest this may be a balancing the budget type exercise then a transfer before refit.
