Is This True? Saskatoon’s Holiday Park Golf Course.
Is this for real? Does the City of Saskatoon's Holiday Park golf course really keep their drinking fountains running constantly? The "dirty coal" bit isn't helpful, but if this is true, it's ridiculous. I'm no environmentalist, but it seems exceedingly wasteful... a literal drain on both resources and utilities.
