The Camille-Marcoux ferry, which runs between Matane and Baie-Comeau, got stuck in the ice twice this weekend.
At 3 p.m. ET Sunday the ferry became trapped and the icebreaker Terry Fox was sent to help free it. The 230 people on board had to wait until the ship resumed its trip at 7 p.m. It arrived in Baie-Comeau four hours late.
Saturday, the ship had turned back after being stuck in the ice in the Matane wharf for more than two hours.
Normally, the Camille-Marcoux makes the journey between Matane and Baie-Comeau in 2½ hours.
Matane is located on the St. Lawrence River on the Gaspé Peninsula.
