Whitney Pier rink

Looks as if the Whitney Pier rink will remain open.

The rink has been there for 50 years and needs some work. It’s been losing teams to the new rink at Membertou.

Kim Sheppard, on the board of directors; said a committee has been put in place to try to keep the facility open.  Sheppard told the Cape Breton Post it’s more than just a skating rink, it’s important to the community.  The addition of a gentleman’s hockey league will help and they are planning fundraisijhng events such as parties, dances and flea markets.  CBRM and the province are also providing some funding.
