“If you are stuck and old, like this ship, eat bacon…”
Snappy facts: One of the most recognizable monuments in the Niagara region, La Grande Hermine (translated, “The Big Weasel”) is a half sitting, half floating ship found in Jordan Harbour, between the Canadian cities of Hamilton and St. Catharines.
She was built in 1914 and was used as a ferry, freighter, restaurant and replica ship. Abandoned in 1997, The Weasel was a victim of arson in 2003. The wreck is visible from the QEW, the main freeway servicing the cities between Toronto and Niagara Falls and is easily accessible for photos.
