THE Canadian shipping industry welcomed the federal government announcement to launch a competitive process to build six new icebreakers to operate in the St Lawrence, Atlantic Canada and the Arctic, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

'These new icebreakers will help ensure the long-term success of Canadian industries and communities who rely on marine shipping all year round to deliver goods to markets at home and around the world,' said Bruce Burrows, president of the Chamber of Marine Commerce, which represents ship operators, ports and marine transportation customers that operate in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence, east coast and the Arctic.



'Canadian Coast Guard icebreaking services are essential to ensuring that the Great Lakes-St Lawrence navigation system remains a reliable trade gateway.



'We will continue to work with the government to ensure that adequate icebreaking assets are also available in the Great Lakes, as well as for the St Lawrence River and the east and Arctic coasts,' he said.
