Letters to the editor...Sports facilities should be election priority

Full Text

Dear editor, I concur with Clayton Browning about the lack of parks and recreational facilities in Halton Hills (June 9 letter, Slopitch player bemoans lack of fields). As a board member of the Georgetown youth soccer and hockey clubs I also see first-hand the negative effects of the lack of facilities on programs and waiting lists (which are continuously growing). I also agree that many of the plans for facility development have been slowed or halted altogether. There are countless reasons why we should have these facilities for our residents that are young and young at heart, starting with physical health and an investment in our youth, and I strongly believe we should make this a high priority in Halton Hills. The ball will be in your readers' court on November 13, let's hope the right play is made! Drew Riedstra, Georgetown (Editor's note: Drew Riedstra is a registered candidate for Ward 4 Councillor for the Nov. 13 municipal election.)
