Wow, that's a lot of roller rink closures. We are seeing a lot of rinks close in the U.S. also. I updated my Ontario Roller Skating Rinks page. Thanks for the updates!

PS: Are you the Canadian roller derby girl who traveled to Maui last month???

Calgary is in Alberta, not Ontario.

While Rob does do volunteer work and refereeing for Women's roller derby, his wife Brenda can attest to the fact that he IS actually a male.

Default Bad news

Kathie, More bad new

The oldest rink in Canada was CLOSED last week

Galaxy Skateland
595 Portage at Langside
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Phone: 204-774-6691

Galaxy Skateland, a Winnipeg roller-skating fixture since the 1930s, is set to close its doors next month.

Andre Atkinson, who sold the Portage Avenue building about two years ago after city officials deemed it unsafe, says the new owners are preparing to demolish it.

"It's given a lot of entertainment over the years," Atkinson told CBC News. "It helps out the core area kids. It keeps them off the streets. It was good for tourism because we were getting schools, so it did a lot of things for the city."

The rink's famous hardwood floor will likely get demolished along with the building, Atkinson says.

The lot is now owned by the University of Winnipeg. It plans to build a science complex on the grounds.

The last skate will be held June 4.
