Citizen suggests opening rinks in December and closing them in March would save money

Published: OCTOBER 2, 2007

The Grinch-like cancellation of shinny and pleasure skating at outdoor rinks over the Christmas holidays - currently the plan under city hall's budget cuts - could be reversed, allies of Mayor David Miller suggested yesterday.
