Cooling off on a hot summer day in the St. Lawrence River


Donning orange life-jackets, 375 Montrealers jumped into the St. Lawrence River Friday morning for the 13th annual Big Splash in the Old Port of Montreal.
The event highlights the need to preserve the river’s water quality, as well as increasing access to its shores.
“It’s an opportunity to raise awareness on the importance of using our St. Lawrence River to be able to access water,” Projet Montréal Leader Valérie Plante, told Global News.
“Often citizens feel like they don’t have access to their water, their waterfronts and they’re right,” she said.
