For the past 5 years week in and week out I have maintained the field at Lark Park to try and give the kids in the city a nice spot to play football.... Over the past year I have been in a constant battle with the city over using that field because there are some higher ups that don't like that I use this space and even have gone further to say that I shouldn't be maintaining it either. I always just wanted to do good in this city and to me this has always been a way to give back and try and do something positive.... I made the decision to play somewhere else this year because I didn't think I should have to jump through hoops to try and give back for a field that I have always maintained but lately people in the neighborhood have heard I plan to relocate and have been stopping me and asking me not to go somewhere else that they like having us here and appreciate all we try to do for the kids in our community. I'm torn because I love using Lark Park but am also beyond frustrated that the city only cares about what they can get out of it and not who they help out in the process. I refuse to raise my prices simply to pay them for a field I take care of. I signed a deal with Under Armour last year because they loved what we were doing here with the kids and I held signing that deal up for months until Under Armour could assure me that we are the most inexpensive youth flag football league to play in in ALL OF CANADA and we are. That was important to me because I was one of those kids who couldn't afford to play alot of sports growing up so I don't want to exclude any child the opportunity to play because it costs too much. I have always done this for the love of the game and the desire to do good not to make money off of anyone and anyone who has seen me out there cutting the field for 10 hrs straight or working with the kids can easily see that.

I think the only way for me to fight this is to have the people behind me. Whether it's to sign a petition or to write a letter voicing your opinion I just can't do it alone.
