Rink of dreams?
From the Mayor on Twitter:
I’m sorry, but I cannot be the only Ottawan who his scratching their head over the wisdom of the City spending a cool quarter million on an outdoor rink! The total costs have doubled but the Mayor assures us that the City won’t pick up the cost overrun.
Well, that’s super. But I still don’t get the need for this. Yes, the Canal is closed some of the time, but really, are we to believe that toursists will flock to City Hall to skate on artifical ice if the Canal is unavailable? No way. They want the Canal experience and aren’t going to be convinced into “pretending”.
I have thus far been pretty supportive of most Council decisions to this point. But this isn’t one of them.
And no, it isn’t because of that ugly logo in the middle 🙂
