Any plan to reopen 41 outdoor skating rinks through the end of March break would be nearly impossible, say city staff.
That's because the compressors that cool the ice already have been shut down and equipment removed. It would take up to four days to reopen rinks.
Besides, the 55 unionized staffers who work at the rinks were laid off yesterday and some have taken on other jobs, says Brenda Librecz, general manager of parks, forestry and recreation.
