Rideau Canal draining set to begin Wednesday

Parks Canada starts draining the Rideau Canal on Wednesday.

They'll be removing water from underneath the ice, slowly destabilizing the surface.

That will collapse the ice that remains, causing it to melt more quickly.

The NCC is reminding people that the skateway is closed and the canal is unsafe to walk on.
