Montreal Welcomes First Vessel of 2017 Without a Stopover 
The Chem Sirius arrives at the Port of Montreal. 
On New Year's Day, the Port of Montreal welcomed the first ocean-going vessel in 2017 to cross its downstream limits at Sorel without a stopover. The ship is the Chem Sirius, flying the Liberia flag.

The Chem Sirius, under the command of Captain Danel Ju, is a chemical tanker operated by Ace Tankers CV and represented in Montreal by the SMK Tanker Agency. The Chem Sirius left the Port of Antwerp in Belgium on December 19.

On Wednesday, January 4, the Port of Montreal will award the 178th Gold-Headed Cane at the ceremony celebrating the arrival each year of the first ocean-going vessel to reach Montreal without a stopover. This ceremony will mark this tradition in the marine community as well as the 375th anniversary of the City of Montreal and the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada.
