The Little Ice Breaker

During extreme winter temperatures, part of Lake Ontario, here for example, in Toronto Harbourfront, would freeze. This creates a problem for small boats that must travel along this water. There are three ferries that carry passengers from Toronto to the three islands nearby everyday. To make it easy (or possible) for these boats to travel, a small Fire Rescue boat, doubles as an icebreaker, would travel between the three islands and break up the ice. The red colour of the boat really stands out in a bed of white ice, especially when snow is on the ice.
