Group Calls For Opening Of The Canada Summit Centre
The Huntsville Skating Club is asking the town to open up the Canada Summit Centre. The club sent a letter from their members to Mayor Karin Terziano and Town Councillors asking that the town proceed to open the facility and install ice in time for September.
The Club says that with the start of Stage 3 reopening, it is even more important for the community to safely reopen, which must include safe, planned, structured activities to enrich the lives of all residents including our local youth.
The Club points out that Provincial Sport Organizations have created guidelines for safe return to sport, and are even being used at several facilities within the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit including Allendale in Barrie has 2 rinks and the pool open.
The club argues that a town becomes a community by the way town leaders support and engage their residents. Community services and facilities should be considered for more than just their financial contributions; especially in a time of difficulty, "these services and facilities become even more important to support the mental health and physical wellbeing of local residents," the club says.
