Her Excellency Sharon Johnston and His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, are welcomed by Bonhomme Carnival to the start of the Winter Carnival Ice Canoe Races at Bassin Louise.

It seemed like a perfect day out on the ice of the St. Lawrence River Sunday afternoon as 14 teams of Elite Male and another 14 teams of Elite Female ice canoe racers pushed, paddled and dragged their boats from the Bassin Louise to LĂ©vis and back (twice for the men). Another 23 teams in the Sport class also battled their way through the ice.
