The former Q & O steamer HELEN EVANS will not be spending the winter at Toronto as had been expected. The premature unloading of her storage cargo having been completed by Victory Mills, the EVANS was towed from Toronto on December 29, her destination being Hamilton where, no doubt, she will eventually be dismantled. The towing was done by McKeil tugs from Hamilton.

The Welland Canal closed at midnight on December 29, 1979, and work was immediately begun on a number of winter projects, including the refacing of the west wall of Lock One. Also scheduled is the removal of the abutments of old Bridge 12 at Port Robinson.
