  1. Edmonton Slides Toward ‘Freezeway’

    Why walk to work when you can glide? The capital of Alberta may soon flood a seven-mile stretch of sidewalk into a frozen path, turning cold temperatures to its advantage. The “freezeway” aims to promote exercise and combat the sluggishness of winter’s unrelenting chill by getting the city’s 878,000 residents to skate around town. A pilot project for the ice trail — which would melt in spring into a bike path — may have folks donning their skates as early as next winter.
