Québec Ancêtre - Did you know?

The inhabitants of Quebec do not only canoe in the summer, but also in the winter. Originally, ice canoeing was a practical way to move across the ice of the Saint-Lawrence River. Today it is a sport with an official competition and the most famous event takes place during the Quebec Carnival in February. A team of five athletes race with a canoe over ice and through the cold water. They have screws under the shoes to get a grip on the ice.
