Toronto outdoor skating rinks are going to shut down just in time for March Break.
City council voted yesterday to keep the rinks open for the first two weeks of March but because the spring school break starts on the third week, Toronto kids are losing their holiday ice time.
Fourteen of Toronto's 49 outdoor rinks will stay open until Sunday March 15, council decided.
The next day, the city's high school and elementary students begin their March Break, a full week later than in previous years.
"It's unfortunate the calendar worked out that way, it really is," Councillor Bryan Ashton said.
