Dozens of Winterlude enthusiasts braved the sub-zero temperatures on 3 February to join the inauguration of the EU’s ice sculpture at Confederation Park and freeze the moment in time with their cameras.
The 60-block ice sculpture installation features a photo frame, benches and a table, and is dedicated to Canada and the EU’s global leadership and commitment to climate action.
"There is no question that climate change is now occurring with visible impacts on our environment. Together, Canada and the European Union are leading global efforts in the fight against climate change," said Peteris Ustubs, Ambassador of the European Union to Canada. "Climate action must outpace climate change. This year will be significant as we are moving ahead with the implementation of the Paris Agreement."
The Delegation of the European Union to Canada is delighted to partner with Canadian Heritage for a third consecutive year. Winterlude runs until 19 February.
