Very recent. I'm from/in Halifax, and aside from the newly-constructed BMO Centre out in Bedford, I'm not sure if there has ever been a rink that keeps its ice year round - including the Metro Centre. Oh sure, it gets put back in for a couple of weeks of hockey school here and there, but as far as the ability for a group of guys to rent an hour of ice in August to play some hockey? Don't think it's even possible these days, and Halifax is on the urban side of "municipal".
