Outdoor ice oval in Halifax for the Canada Games open to the public, <strong>weather permitting</strong>! Here's a great quick read about the opening of the big ice on Halifax Commons, mainly for a dose of excitement about speed skating from our northern neighbors. Interesting that a guy got elected there without skating for 40 years, and that bike helmets are not allowed on the ice, only ones designed for skating. Interesting. Perhaps it's about the aero shape on the back of the head on lots of helmets? In any case, thank you, Canada, for loving skating so well and thoroughly!</p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Halifax Common</span> <div class="street-address"> Cogswell St and Robie St </div> <span class="locality">Halifax</span> <div class="country-name">Canada</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="44.649986">44° 38' 59.9496" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-63.588974">63° 35' 20.3064" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.ca?q=Cogswell+St+and+Robie+St%2C+Halifax%2C+%2C+%2C+ca" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://ca.maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=Cogswell+St+and+Robie+St&amp;csz=Halifax&amp;country=ca" target="_blank">Yahoo!
