Photograph from V.C.Scott O'Connor TWIN FERRIES CRUNCH THEIR WAY THROUGH TIDE-CHURNED ICE OF THE ST. LAWRENCE BETWEEN QUEBEC AND LEVIS The terrific force of the river's tides may best be appreciated on a winter's day. Huge sheets and pans of ice are driven headlong toward seabyebb waters, and hurled back again by flood. When the frozen mass resists, powerful icebreakers come up from below Quebec to keep the channel open (seetext, pages 176, 200). Ona clear day the scene is one of Arctic grandeur. Even the carts for hauling snowdrifts from the streets are mountedonrunners (left foreground).
