An outdoor pool in port colborne

I think it's about time we have an outdoor pool built in our town. It will benefit huge in our city. With the recent news article about a girl struggling to swim down our canal and the countless comments about how there's no safety devices or anyone watching who swims there I think it's about time our city does something that will help our youth and generations to come. I myself swam in the canal as a teenager as well as most of you. But if they didn't take out the only pool we had I garintee more would be pool side then in the canal. I for one just love to put my feet in a pool and watch my kids swimming around for hours. The city of Welland has 3 outdoor pools and my family and I have made countless trips to one of them every summer because we have nothing in port. Yes we have the ymca but that is not the same. First you have to pay to use the pool, second there's only sertin hours you have access to the family swim and third it's not out doors where we can enjoy the sunshine and just relax.. There's multiple empty spaces and lots that would be perfect for a pool. And it woukd create a few more jobs in the town. I think If we come together as a city we can make this happen!
