As reported in the Ottawa Sun, on Saturday morning on Parliament Hill, a whole bunch of people were making snow angels. It was also happening at the same time all across the country.
The event was part of Canadian Ski Patrol Day, which honours the 4,500 volunteer patrollers who protect people using the country’s 220 ski hills.
This is the second attempt at the record, after last year just over 9,000 people participated. Each person is allowed to make one angel.
