Polar Bear Plunge in Pointe-Claire

Polar Bear.jpgIt's difficult enough to go for a walk at this time of year - so imagine going for a swim. Outside.
That's what a group of people is doing in at the Pointe-Claire Marina today.

The Polar Bear Plunge is a fundraising event to benefit Special Olympics Quebec.

Officer Marc Ratte is taking the plunge for the first time in his life. He joins Sonali Karnick this morning on the phone as he prepares to jump into Lac St-Louis later today.
