An empty Lafarge barge, Metlakatla 1, that ran aground on November 29th when the tug tow line snapped during a windstorm, has been towed to Ogden Point.   The barge remained stuck on the rocks for 10 days near the McLoughlin Point sewage treatment plant on Vancouver Island.  The barge is expected to undergo repairs over the next three weeks. The barge has no fuel on board and was not considered a pollution threat, according to Transport Canada.
