On December 6, 1917, the ship entered the port of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, carrying a cargo of explosives onboard. The ship collided with another, the SS Imo from Norway, causing a fire onboard the Mont-Blanc that ignited the explosives. This caused a massive explosion, killing about 2000 people and blinding many others.
A team of Cahills visited Halifax during the events of Mission Titanic, believing that Cahill Outcast Nathaniel Hartford intended to recreate the explosion of the Mont-Blanc using another ship, the Aurora. While the Aurora was carrying illegal weapons trafficked by James Atlas, the explosion of the Mont-Blanc was not the Outcast's intended disaster recreation, who instead targeted the Titanic II.
