REC CENTRE PROTEST
A protest against town council's decision not to push forward with a 35 million dollar multi recreational facility at Central Park will take place in Collingwood today.
Town council voted last month to build a so-called bubble covering at a new ice rink at Central Park and place another one over Centennial Pool, all for about 11 million dollars.
Rally organizers say a steering committee recommended two ice surfaces, community space and a 25 metre pool at Central Park, yet council did not take the time to even look at funding options.
The rally outside the town municipal building begins at four this afternoon.
