Apparently the photo below, taken last week by my colleague Tony Saxon and printed on our front page, caused quite a tizzy at City Hall.
The next day, city staff issued a memo -- which Ian Findlay promptly posted to his blog -- expressing concern about the photo because it made it appear the rink at Grange and Watson is a city facility, which it's not, and that people were obviously not paying attention to the 'no skating' signs.
Staff have since posted signs at various stormwater management ponds stating that skating is not permitted because of possible safety risks, and put this notice on its website.
It's curious nobody seems very concerned about the dog in the photo running loose. Maybe that's a staff memo for another day ...
