Eye­sore re­moved from Que­bec water­front

Times Colonist - - B.c. / Canada -

The Kathryn Spirit, an aban­doned ship that has loomed over the water­front for seven years in Beauharnois, Que., was hauled away Fri­day af­ter be­ing dis­man­tled. Built in 1967, the 150-me­tre-long ship hauled cargo. In 2011, a lo­cal com­pany bought it with the idea of strip­ping it for scrap, but those plans went awry and the ves­sel wound up on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. The fed­eral gov­ern­ment spent $11 mil­lion to re­move the ship from Beauharnois, part of the Greater Mon­treal Area.
