A look into a rather unique bit of Toronto's nautical history along with unique views of the city skyline from the former Essroc pier.
The "Metis" (pron. "may-tee") has a very interesting and long history. It was once a self - unloading bulk carrier for Canada Steamship Lines (the first bulk carrier for CSL in fact) hauling grain and ore along the St. Lawrence and around the Great Lakes since the 1950's. It was later converted to a barge (bridge removed and engines inoperable) by the early 1990's and used as a cement carrier. It sat idle in the Toronto port lands where it's engines were dismantled and salvaged. It has since been removed from this site.
