The call was for some of our natural sodas made from our favourite infusions to be served at a board meeting. This board meeting, however, would be hundreds of longboard enthusiasts cruising down the city streets with skateboards built for speed.
They dressed in suits, white shirts and ties for their annual event. For two to three hours every year they careen through the city streets. One year they proudly skated through the crowd and celebrities at TIFF, the international film festival.
There is no rest for these skaters. Some of them plan to join Push for The Cure, a group who are skating across the country to raise money and awareness of the national breast cancer foundation. They will be off again, this time skating 200 kilometres from Toronto to Niagara Falls.
