A last-minute plea to reopen 41 outdoor rinks - beyond eight already staying open for next week's March break - failed at city council yesterday amid partisan bickering. But council agreed unanimously to direct staff to look at "costs and opportunities" to keep rinks open during the school break in future years. The rink fight came as council wrapped up a three-day session, with the focus set to shift today to the budget committee as it puts the final touches on this year's $8.1-billion budget.
