Heard Up North: Rideau Canal fan

Listen to this story
Winterlude opened in Canada's capitol over the weekend. The annual celebration of winter in Ottawa continues for the next couple of weeks with music, food, art and skating on the world's largest skating rink -- the Rideau Canal. The Skateway opened for it's 41st season in early January.

Skating on the frozen waterway is such an eagerly-awaited event that Lucy Martin got a happy surprise when she easily found good street parking on opening weekend. That made her wonder how residents feel about living in the impact zone?

The first one she encountered said he doesn't really mind.

Oliver Bayer is today's Heard Up North.
