Global warming is happening! Look at the weather outside.

If council must approve spending money on an outdoor rink, why is it being added to Riverside Park?

Would not McArthur Island not be a better place?

There is plenty of parking on McArthur Island, ice-making equipment is closer, (no need to purchase more) and washrooms are there.

It would also be much cheaper to build on McArthur Island, compared to Riverside Park.

Remember what the voices told Kevin Costner’s character in the movie Field of Dreams: If you build it (on the island), they will come.
