Romancing the ice

When Bob Poldon was a young man living in Ottawa, he would grab his skates in the worst weather and head for the Rideau Canal. "I would go out skating at night when it was minus 27 and windy. Beautiful."

In the next week or so, when we get a good stint of sub-zero weather, Poldon will be out in the cold again this time clad in insulated boots and down coat as he makes a skating rink at his Etobicoke home. He wants his teenage boys to experience the dark, frigid beauty of a night-time skate and to brush up on their hockey skills.
