Montrealers take part in Grand Splash in bid to promote access to Saint Lawrence River


It’s extremely hot out, but is it hot enough for you to take a leap into the Saint Lawrence River?
That’s exactly what a group of Montrealers, including the mayor, did Tuesday morning at the 15th annual Grand Splash.
“15 years ago, everybody thought you’d put your hand in the Saint Lawrence River and only the bones would come out,” said organizer Pierre Lussier, as people swam next to the Jacques Cartier Pier in Old Montreal.
