Open the Sudbury Laurentian Pool

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Laurentian University pool has remained closed, affecting the lives of many athletes in the Sudbury area. With no training facility to use, this has impacted all age categories from club swimmers, to varsity, synchro, masters swimming and many others. The Olympic size 50 meter Jeno Tihanyi pool is the largest pool in Northern Ontario, providing elite training and facilities for many athletes in all areas of the North. Seeing that pools are open in all other areas in Ontario following social distancing guidelines, this has a serious impact on the training regimen of athletes and are forcing swimmers to relocate during this crisis as well as reconsider choices for post secondary education and athletics. This petition has one goal in mind: to open the pool to aid athletes in the Sudbury District.
