Norwegian icebreaker to clear North Saskatchewan River

Agent 9 reports that it's cold on the Canadian prairie... mighty cold!

To quote the late Ed McMahon, "How cold was it?!" Well... it's been sooo cold that the government of Alberta has borrowed a Norwegian icebreaker to clear the North Saskatchewan River for freighter traffic.

The icebreaker is starting near Devon AB and working its way northward. Here is a picture as the hard work of icebreaking begins. Impressive!

As with  yesterday's report from Agent 6, Ed. has had difficulty verifying this one, but Walt can't believe that a man of the cloth would just make this up... would he?
