With his skates slung over his shoulder and an-ear-to-ear grin, he looked like a kid w ho was skipping school.
Sometimes in life you just have to do that. "I don't w ant to go back to city council," teased Mayor David Miller at the outdoor rink at High Park yesterday.
I'll bet he didn't. Less high-sticking here. And less bodychecking. Truth is, there was not one person at the unveiling of the newly renovated outdoor rink park yesterday w ho did not agree.
It w as one of those time-stands-still kind of moments. This w as as close to perfect as you are ever going to get at a time when it seems so many have a pout on and a pet peeve on the tip of their tongue.
Not on this day. No talk of budgets, the economy, murder, Tasers, taxes, dog-attacking coyotes and, yes, a ridiculous new $300 provincial home emissions charge.
We'll slam on about all of that at a later time.
