Dinner talk: Can Campbell rink stay open during a lockout?

Earlier this week I posted a notice about a community dinner and discussion in the Campbell Rink clubhouse 5:30-7pm this Saturday. One of the things up for discussion is the possibility of keeping Campbell and the other two Ward 18 outdoor rinks open during a lockout. For this to happen our city councilor would have to persuade management to keep the compressors running. Then if the city only locks out workers belonging to CUPE Local 416 (i.e. the zamboni drivers; the other rinks staff belong to Local 79) the rinks could stay open. Union workers have said they'd volunteer to come and help shovel the snow off the rinks -- a lockout is different than a strike! Councilor Ana Bailao said she would be passing by Campbell at 5:30. She's also said she's interested in hearing what the community has to say.

One more thing: a few of us are working on a short history of Campbell Park. Enjoy a cheap tasty meal and bring your recollections of the earlier days, if you used the park in years past. See you on Saturday.
