With the city in the sweaty grip of a gross heat wave, dozens of people found relief by taking the plunge in the Old Port. The occasion was the 12th edition of le Grand Splash, an evening swim organized by the Comité citoyen Montreal Baignade to promote the improved water quality in the St. Lawrence, as well as the potential of future access of the waterways on the island.
