Rideau Canal Open again

Skaters should be able to return to part of the Rideau Canal today. The popular Ottawa skateway was closed last week due to a brief January thaw but the weekend saw frigid weather return. The National Capital Commission says crews have been working hard to get the surface ready so skating can resume.  It says a section of the canal between Somerset and the Hartwell Locks is expected to open at 8 a-m.
