Policing the passage

Coast Guard icebreakers are arguably the most practical means of asserting Canadas presence in the Northwest Passage, an increasingly travelled and commercialized waterway. Last summer, writer James Raffan and photographer Benoit Aquin boarded the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent and, for two weeks, witnessed the icebreakers multi-faceted mission as it carved one warm line through the Arctic Archipelago.

Travels with Louis

Canadian Geographic writer James Raffan and photographer Benoit Aquin spent two weeks aboard the Louis last July for their feature in the Jan/Feb 2007 issue, "Policing the passage," the first in a year-long series of stories in Canadian Geographic devoted to understanding the poles, in recognition of International Polar Year 2007-08.
