I am contacting FedNav to find out where she is at this point in time
and what her assignment is.  I will keep you updated - this may take
several days, especially with the holiday upon us.

Hi again.  I now have the exact information you had required -

*** The MV Arctic is currently in the port in Quebec City loading up
with supplies, and is about to leave for Northern Quebec. ***

If you would like further information, my contact person is Glenda
Cameron, and she is very accessible at - she would
be glad to help but requested that you contact her directly if you are
in need of further info, photographs or anything else.

In addition, if you enter the flash-enabled FedNav site - follow the
directions and you will be able to access additional information about
the Arctic's activities -

+ go to the website,
+ select the Flash enabled site (you can skip the intro)
+ select Fednav Group
+ select Canarctic Shipping
+ select "description of activities"

I hope this now completely addresses your request.

I was unable to find the current where abouts of the MV Arctic,
however, I did find a fascinating article from a ship's log that
involves the MV Arctic an ice breaking.

The Northern Ice

I will continue to research, but the above article was very
interesting and I thought you might like to read it since you have
expressed an interest in the MV Arctic.
