Crazy or brave? Perhaps encouraged by the relatively balmy weather, a record-breaking 2,550 folks rang in 2014 by taking a dip in the Burrard Inlet for the annual Vancouver polar bear swim which takes place every year on New Year’s Day. The English Bay water temperature was 8C; the air temperature was 6C. The new record eclipses 2,246 participants in 2011.
