Ice Canoe Women's Elite race winners in the George V boat get off to a great start at Sunday afternoon's Carnival Canoe Races. Third place finishers (Bryand Smoked Meat boat) in the foreground took an early lead but got hung up on a block of ice before they left Bassin Louise.

The weather and river conditions were perfect on Sunday afternoon as three groups of ice canoe racers paddled, pushed and pulled their boats across the ice-strewn St. Lawrence River.
