At 0030 hours Lakeshore Towing removed the oil boom around the tanker and the vessel was ready to leave the Mountfort Terminal at 0145. The CLIPPER TOBAGO will reach the call-in point at Long Point at 0340 and will reach the Welland Canal at 0610 hours this morning, bound for Montreal before continuing on to Europe with this load of biodiesel.
