Norwegian Icebreaker heads up the North Saskatchewan River

As you may have seen on the news it's been very cold in Alberta ...
So cold, in fact, that the Government of Alberta has borrowed a Norwegian Icebreaker to clear the North Saskatchewan River for freighter traffic.
The Icebreaker is starting near Devon and working its way northward. 
Here is a picture as the hard work of ice breaking begins. Impressive!
