at nathan philips square, they put in an ice rink in the winter. i arrived and got to see the excitement of ice cleaning. for those who aren’t familiar with ice rinks, after a while the ice needs to be “cleaned” which is really just scraping up the excess ice shavings and remelting the top layer of the ice with a lot of hot water i believe. the ice quickly refreezes and skating can resume again. outdoor ice skating is a very canadian tradition and it’s very neat to be able to do it in the middle of the city at city hall.

clean it up
