Toronto - Toronto city council has decided against opening any of its outdoor skating rinks in time for March break. The cost of re-opening 41 of the outdoor rinks was a factor in the decision. It was a bitter debate at council, but at the end, it was decided that keeping rinks open during March break can be looked into for next year. "I am extremely disappointed because rinks represent a great way for kids and adults to stay in shape [and] get outside," one man, who lives near Withrow Park, told 680News. Although current weather conditions would be good enough to maintain outdoor rinks, 680News meteorologist, Brian Hill, said at the end of next week, temperatures will reach 6C.
