The Canadian Geographer recently published a study by Wilfrid Laurier University Geography and Environmental Studies researchers Colin Robertson, Robert McLeman, and Haydn Lawrence which found that the number of days cold enough for outdoor skating in a typical Canadian winter could decrease by 34 per cent in Montreal and Toronto and by 20 per cent in Calgary over the course of this century.

The researchers reached their findings using data volunteered by hundreds of Canadians who maintain outdoor rinks in their backyards and neighbourhood parks.
