Glenn was invited by the High Commission of Canada to design and lead a team of Australian Ice Sculptors to produce a feature exhibition in the centre of Ottawa, in conjunction with their major winter Festival, 'WINTERLUDE'. He assembled a team of ice carvers and with his "Gateway to Australia" design and created his own special ice magic.
