Letter: Misinformation on arenas abound

Should Central Manitoulin sell the Mindemoya arena too?

To the Expositor:

I realize now that we as members of the Providence Bay Agriculture Society need to invite some people that were at the Mindemoya council meeting of September 30 discussing arenas because they have no idea of the tremendous expense to put on the Providence Bay Fair, as a non-profit organization we have always struggled to keep in the black.

I’m sure selling the Mindemoya arena to the Mindemoya Minor Hockey Association would make about as much sense as they couldn’t afford to maintain the arena either. Are our younger generation of hockey players that spoiled that they can’t play on different sizes of ice surfaces?

Since the early 1950s the rinks were appreciated, now the rinks are too small.
