A Toronto councillor is pushing the cash-strapped city to reopen ice rinks in time for March Break.
Coun. Case Ootes said the city should foot the bill to reopen the rinks, many of which have been closed since Sunday. The cost of operating the rinks during the break will be about $200,000.
"The budget committee found over $1 million they didn't know they had," he said. "Some of that money can be used for this."
