This drone image recorded by Ian Sanderson offers a different perspective, one that shows why Sarnia is a key Canadian transportation hub.
From left, The Andrew S. Brandt Marina is popular with local and transient Great Lakes pleasure boaters.
Massive lake and ocean-going freighters use Sarnia Harbour to ship goods to and from the world.
And at right, a rail line carries locally grown corn, wheat and soybeans to the Cargill Sarnia grain elevators, which ship it to domestic and international markets.
Not seen here are the city’s rail yard or the Blue Water Bridge, Canada’s second busiest commercial crossing point to the U.S. and which reopened to non-essential American travellers this week.
