YooHoo - Google is my friend. I guessed that it might be Nova Scotia. Can it be the St. Peters Canal?
Yes, Zanshin.. that's it. the southern entrance to Nova Scotia's Bras d'Or lakes, really a tidal salt water sea. The double locks you refer to are due to the possibility of either end of the canal being higher at any given time (because the 'lakes' are tidal fed from the northeastern entrance, which is not locked)

We stopped and watched this group go through and had a very pleasant chat with the lockkeeper this past summer.. btw - no canal fees either. We later saw that group at Baddeck on the lake.

You're up, Zanshin..
