Citizens are crying foul after the City of Hamilton posted signs at popular tobogganing spots warning that sledding was banned and violators would be fined up to $5,000.

The Agenda asks if this is creating a liability chill, and if our court system has lost touch with reality.
Watch the video as Thomson Rogers’ Stacey Stevens participates in a panel discussion about the limits of municipal liability when it comes to tobogganing and sledding.
