I want to stop the proposed closure of the Bertrand Arena and Maginot Arena. These arenas are utilized by many people, young and old and many generations. It would be a devastating loss to the communities. They are a social gathering place for many kids to skate and play with their friends or for parents teaching their children to skate. Many teens with dreams of playing hockey in the big leagues got their start playing and learning in small arenas. Do we want to be responsible for eliminating those dreams by closing down arenas??! I don’t think so. These arenas allow our children to learn, build skills, have fun, get exercise and socialize. If these were not made available these kids could be prone to theft and vandalism out of boredom. There are many benefits to keeping these arenas open.  The benefits far outweigh the consequences.
