In February 2022, a historic event with unprecedented significance will occur: A large snowmobile expedition led by seven women, whose mission is to immortalize the reconciliation between the nations of Quebec, by transporting the Sacred Fire - a symbol of peace - to nation to nation, across northern Quebec.

In this daring snowmobile crossing, 4,500 km will be traveled from South to North and from East to West, each nation will contribute to this adventure by welcoming women in an extraordinary way. The event will be highlighted by several ceremonies, shows and traditional activities.

This adventure will result in a documentary series produced by David Etienne Durivage and presented to TVA Sports.
