Council votes to open rinks earlier

More than a dozen of the city's outdoor rinks w ill open earlier this fall because of a victory for councillors outside the mayor's inner circle.

The coup came late Tuesday, when Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong usurped the recommendations of the community development and recreation committee to consider opening some of the city's rinks early in 2010 and pushed through a vote to have 14 open at an earlier date this fall.


Rennie, Sir Adam Beck, Sunnydale, Duf ferin Grove, Hodgson, Kew Gardens, Regent Park South, Mel Lastman Square, Broadlands, Glen Long, Irving Chapley, Albert Campbell, and West Mall rinks w ill all open this year at the same time as Nathan Phillips Square's ice surface does -- Nov. 21.

"We have a number of outdoor ice rinks all across the city and w e can only use them certain w eeks of the year," Minnan-Wong told council, though many of the city's 45 councillors had lef t by then. "We are not using these ice rinks to capacity ... and w e know w e can open some of these ice rinks earlier."
