Summary
In this program, a driver in Senegal phones in a rental car breakdown, a Canadian traveler reports a piece of lost luggage, and a couple in Quebec rent a pair of snowmobiles. In addition, the video spotlights three unusual forms of locomotion that have helped tame the Canadian winter: an air taxi on the Isle-aux-Grues that transports residents and freight to and from the mainland; specialized canoes that ferry residents of the ice-locked island when weather grounds the air taxi; and the ubiquitous snowmobile, invented in Quebec and used throughout the world.
