Web Links

The Saint Lawrence River and Seaway

Want to know how big a ship can be and still fit into the St. Lawrence Seaway? How long did it take to build the seaway? How much did it cost? How many tonnes of cargo are shipped through the seaway? Check out this Web site to find the answers to those questions, and more.

The Redpath Museum

This site has lots of information on the mammals, fish, birds, and reptiles of Quebec, as well as this province's "species at risk"-those that are endangered or threatened. If you click on the "Quebec Natural History" link, you can also get more detailed information about the physical regions of Quebec (called "geologic regions" on this site), and its life zones.
