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!

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.
