Premiers take the ice bucket challenge in Charlottetown

Premiers Darrell Pasloski of Yukon, Christy Clark of British Columbia and Nunavut's Peter Taptuna wrapped up Council of the Federation meetings in Charlottetown Friday by enduring a shower of icy water for the ice bucket challenge.

Before being doused, Clark nominated NBA star and Vancouver Whitecaps co-owner Steve Nash, from Victoria, to take the challenge, as well as Vancouver Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini and B.C. Lions' coach Wally Buono.

The ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also called ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, has caught fire on social media this summer and raised millions of dollars in donations.
