About 140 people — including Montreal mayor Valerie Plante — took the plunge into the St. Lawrence on Tuesday morning.  Organized by Comité Citoyen Montréal Baignade, the Grand Splash event takes place at the Old Port’s Quai Jacques-Cartier and promotes the improvement and preservation of the St. Lawrence waterways and future public beach projects. The 14th annual early-morning swim also served as an opportunity to cool down during this week’s epic heatwave.
