Councillors Rally for Rinks

Councillors rally against delayed opening of rinks

By: Desmond Brown
Published: September 28, 2007

Now that Toronto city councillors have voted to reopen community centres, they've turned their attention to ensuring outdoor ice rinks open before the Christmas holidays.

Opening city rinks a month later than the usual date, Dec. 1, was one of the measures proposed by Mayor David Miller to battle the city's cash crunch.

If the cuts materialize, they'll impact all city rinks, including Nathan Phillips Square.

The annual Cavalcade of Lights, which kicks off in late November and runs through December, will also be affected.

Councillors who oppose the move, which would save the city an estimated $160,000, tried to get the issue heard during Wednesday's city council meeting, but it was voted down.
