To the editor,
Road hockey, one of our purest national symbols and pastimes, was outlawed in 100 Mile House on Jan. 2, 2019.
Surely this is offensive to me as a local taxpayer on Evergreen Crescent – but more so, it offends me as a Canadian.
This town has plenty of issues to focus on: drinking water, sidewalks, transportation, and recreation, to name a few. But first things first, the District decides to shut down a road hockey game some kids are playing in the middle of the day during Winter Break?
To make matters a little more salty, there’s a big Confederate flag proudly on display along the same street where those kids used to play.
The District says they have no problem with that flag here. But the hockey (the hockey!) needs to stop…
That’s not the spirit of Canada I’ve known and cherished forever.
What are the priorities of the Mayor and the new Council for this great little town and country?
