Oops....whose mistake? A CELOS rink researcher visited Albert Campbell and Mel Lastman rinks on Saturday December 1. Although the City website said both would open on Dec.1 (see the City's original opening schedule as copied December 2), both rinks were closed and neither had been flooded. A city employee at Albert Campbell said the rink would probably be open on Wednesday December 5. There were no city workers at Mel Lastman.

The City website now says Albert Campbell and Mel Lastman will open December 8 along with the rest of the outdoor rinks.
All remaining city rinks were to open on Dec.8 but now the City web site has some new information. Albert Campbell Rink (Scarborough Town Centre) and Mel Lastman Rink (North York) will open on Dec.8 (instead of Dec.1 as announced originally), but West Mall Rink (Etobicoke) and Giovanni Caboto (St.Clair and Lansdowne) have had their opening postponed to Dec.15. See individual rink details.
