  4. If we’re going to stop relying on China they will need more heavy breakers for the Great Lakes to keep shipping going year round. I live in a part of Michigan that has a Coast Guard station and a Ice Breaker/Bouy Tender. More and larger ships would be needed to keep the shipping lanes open in the winter months.
