A little history:
The Empress of Ireland was a transatlantic ocean liner owned by the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company that sailed between Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, and Liverpool, United Kingdom. She sank on the early morning of May 29, 1914 in the St. Lawrence River after colliding with the Storstad in a disaster which claimed 1,012 lives, making it the worst maritime disaster in Canadian history. Her sinking was overshadowed by World War I.
