Tobogganing Motion

Back at the end of January I gave notice of motion to ask staff to look into the establishment of official tobogganing hills.

This motion will be coming to Council today.  I know how much my own kids love tobogganing.  Growing up in Elliot Lake my brothers and I spent countless hours climbing up and sliding down hills.

Recent court rulings have demonstrated that tobogganing is an inherently risky activity and we’ve seen court cases against other municipalities dismissed involving tobogganing.  I want to see tobogganing return to Hamilton and I’m committed to finding a safe way for everyone to enjoy it while protecting tax payers from lawsuits.
