Wear a hel­met, then skate

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Skate­board safety

Once again there is a pic­ture, this time on page 6 of the July 12 Spec­ta­tor, of a 12-year-old without a hel­met at Beasley Park, one of the old­est skate parks in North Amer­ica. The story fea­tures a re­port call­ing for more skat­ing fa­cil­i­ties in Hamil­ton. Be­fore more skat­ing fa­cil­i­ties are ap­proved, more 12-year-olds, and oth­ers younger and older, should be re­quired to wear a hel­met at all skate parks. Safety first. Wear a hel­met, then skate. Jim Mar­guer­att, Burling­ton
