We have long despaired that there would ever be an accurate way to tell whether, on any given day, a visit to the Welland Canal would be worth the drive from home. We have all experienced those days when the weather was great and the traffic terrible, only to find that the next day, when we did not bother to go, we missed the passage of some important vessel.

At last, those days have passed. The St. Lawrence Seaway Authority has introduced a recorded phone message which lists those ships in the canal at any given time and those expected to enter the waterway within the next few hours. Interested parties may ring (416) 688-6462 to make use of this valuable information. We salute the S.L.S.A. for making this service available to the public.
