Thanks for your answers
Without a stick otherwise you will never develop proper balance and will be too dependent on the stick. Check for "learn to skate programs" for adults in your area - Verdun. If Verdun does not have one I belive the closest would be NDG at the Doug Harvey Arena. They have one of the best "learn to skate programs for pre-school kids" in the city.
