Rideau Canal to re-open Friday

The green flag is going back up on the Rideau Canal tomorrow morning.

The NCC Skateway tweeted today that 7.2 kilomtres from Laurier Bridge to Hartwells Locks will be available to skaters.

The stretch will open at 8 a.m., just in time for the weekend, and some frigid temperatures.

With the wind, we'll reach at least minus-20 each of the next three days.
