Rideau Canal can be so much better
Re: The Rideau Canal Skateway is overrated. There, I said it, Jan. 23.
I was born and raised in Old Ottawa South and agree with Tyler Dawson that the Rideau Canal is overrated summer or winter, but it doesn’t have to be so. Given that winter canal-skating season is so short and expensive, why not just develop a beautiful skating mecca at Dow’s Lake and forget about skating the whole length?http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/letters/todays-letters-reviving-the-rideau-canal-hydro-costs-and-washington-2017
