Rideau Canal Skateway to open Saturday
Sharpen your skates!
The Nationla Capital Commission has announced a section of the Rideau Canal Skateway will open for skating starting at 8:00 a.m. Saturday.
A roughly 4.5 kilometre stretch of the world's largest skateway -- between the Laurier Avenue Bridge and the Bronson Avenue Bridge -- will be available for skating.
This season's opening is 9 days earlier than last season's. The Canal opened to skaters on January 23rd last year, and saw its shortest skating season on record, with only 18 skating days.
