Quebecois on St. Marys River

The Quebecois is one of the great steamship freighters of the Great Lakes. Built in 1963, this ship has carried countless loads to and from the United States and Canada. Shown in this video under the Upper Lakes Shipping fleet, the ship is now owned by the Algoma Central Corporation and was renamed Algoma Quebecois in early 2012.

The St. Marys River channel connects Lake Superior with Lake Huron and is the site of the Soo Locks in the twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Ontario. The locks carry ships past the natural rapids of the St. Marys and were constructed in 1837.

Ando Kal is an instrumental musician. “Ambrosia” is the first commercially available single by the artist.
