    Gas leak causes lung problems for skater Karen Magnussen

    Canada - A gas leak at a North Vancouver ice rink that was reported as a minor incident last November may have put one of Canada's most prominent athletes out of commission for life.

    It is sad news, indeed.

    All the best to Karen...my skating hero for life.

    What happened to Karen, and also what happened to the hockey players here (and to one of the skaters at Adult Nationals this year) is bringing to light that a lot of rinks need to evaluate how to better conduct business so that what happened to Karen, and what happened to these people will either be minimized, or never happen again:
