Lace up your skates! Parc-Jean-Drapeau in Montreal unveils its refrigerated skating path this weekend at the Fete-Des-Neiges.
But if you're going there today and plan on skating on the path, you may need to catch up with our next guest. Former short-track speed skater François-Louis Tremblay will be on the path!
François-Louis Tremblay has won 5 Olympic medals and many world championship medals, including a gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics in the relay.
He'll be taking the slow lane on the new refrigerated skating path, along with fellow Olympian Mathieu Turcotte later today. François-Louis Tremblay joins Sonali Karnick in studio.
