Canadians will not be kept off the rinks this winter – which means backyard skating rinks are the new toilet paper and a Montreal company is leading the pack in sales

The on-line company, Ice N' Go,  has seen a 200 percent increase in sales, and the owners, Michael Schwar and Blair Robertson say they have been working overtime to ship their do-it-yourself rinks across the country so that the kids can "stay engaged this winter, do something other than sitting indoors."

If you are thinking about it, the DIY kit takes about two hours to install, you need your own lumbar, and your yard needs to be level.
