When Deirdre Norman began playing shinny with her husband and son eight years ago, she noticed "a huge discrepancy" between men and women's ice time.
That was the catalyst for The Women of Winter Outdoor Shinny Tournament in Dufferin Grove Park, which Norman founded in collaboration with Toronto parks and recreation.
"I thought we should have a celebration on our outdoor rink," said Norman.
Part of the city's parks and rec programming, this year's tournament takes place over the Feb. 3 weekend. The city provides the ice and facilities and The Women of Winter, led by Norman, run the tournament which has been gaining momentum since its inception seven years ago.
