For the 64th Winter Carnival, Bonhomme’s Giant Slide was moved onto Grande-Allée. There, carnival-goers slid from Vancouver to Halifax on a giant ice slide sponsored by VIA Rail Canada. The slide featured a typical recording of train sounds and of a voice welcoming passengers onto the ride that would take them from the East Coast to the West Coast.
