I have a rooted Sensation with CWM. I just got an notification for the ICS update through Bell.

Now I know I need to get stock recovery before doing the update.

How can I flash the stock recovery? I tried searching in the Development section but couldn't find anything. Can anyone point me into the right direction to get this update.

Thanks.

Here is a download of the stock recovery just flash it via bootloader.

You should still be able to download the OTA but it will fail because of the custom recovery. But it should be a simple matter to flash the stock recovery back, do the OTA update, then reflash your custom recovery.

I flashed the stock recovery, it went fine. When I try to update it will get stuck on a red question mark over the device and restart without updating.

What should I do?

Yes, it was the official update through settings.

Should I do it through recovery?

No. Make sure you are not rooted and apply the OTA from inside the OS.
