Canadian ship borne explosions.

I know I'd heard of an ship carrying ordinance going bang in Canada. A little searching turned up this.

I hear rumors the anchor was found miles away but the article doesn't specify other than "scattered fragments of Mont-Blanc for kilometres".

In memory of those affected. PP
