"Parks Canada is working to refortify the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton against assaults from the sea.

Work has started to build up the Quay Wall, which separates the reconstructed site from Louisbourg harbour. 

"We know that since the 18th century sea levels have risen about a metre," Ebert said. "We also know that, due to climate change, that we've got both more storms but also more intense storms."'
