From kiltskate.com: The idea for a kilt skate to celebrate Scottish heritage began in Ottawa in 2014 when the Scottish Society of Ottawa sought a way to commemorate the upcoming bicentennial of the birth of Sir John A. Macdonald, the architect of Confederation and Canada’s first Prime Minister. They approached Don Cummer, who for many years had been skating the Rideau Canal in his kilt each January to celebrate Sir John A’s birthday. Dates and locations follow!
