Ice fishing huts of Canada

From Nine To Noon, 10:14 am on 4 March 2016

Ice fishing is as quintessential a winter activity in Canada as ice hockey, skiing and curling.

Toronto-based Richard Johnson has spent more than nine winters traveling to all of Canada's provinces photographing the quirky, personalised ice huts.
