The James Whalen. The tug was built in 1905 for the Canadian Towing & Wrecking Company of Port Arthur, Ontario who used her as an icebreaker. The ship had a long and distinguished career and made her mark in Great Lakes maritime history when on April 4, 1910 she became the first Canadian vessel to send a wireless message. The tug retired in 1992. Instead of being scrapped, the ship was returned to her original home of Port Arthur, now known as Thunder Bay. The ship was restored to her original 1905 configuration and is now a tourist attraction in Heritage Park, which located along the Kaministiquia River.
