Wow! When I recently heard on the news that several Ontario communities have outlawed tobogganing on municipal hills, and that many more are considering it, I thought now we’ve gone too far. For years I’ve known that we’re growing ever more protective (read lawsuit-conscious) and are covering our tails to avoid litigation. But this is too much. Tobogganing is as Canadian as hockey, and I don’t hear anyone talking about outlawing hockey just because kids get injured playing it. I think it’s time we reconsider what the heck we’re doing to our kids, and to our Canadian way of life.
