Inspired by Canada's gold-medal Olympic women's team, Toronto girls are taking to hockey like never before. But their local league teams have been body-checked by public arena functionaries restricting girls' ice-time.
Declaring such discrimination "unacceptable," Mayor David Miller told the Star's Mary Ormsby yesterday that he would make sure the arms-length boards running the city-owned arenas provide equal time to female players in the future. Miller could hardly have said otherwise, given the city's policy for its arenas.
