Day 142 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Quebec City is a Winter City

Horse-drawn carriages work the streets of Quebec city, day and night. Some horses travel up to an hour in a horse trailer to get to work seven days a week.

Les Quebecois are possibly the most active people of Canada. You can find 94 year old men out for their daily walks or young kids skating for hours on end everywhere in Quebec.
