YOUR LET­TERS Kin 3 seats hor­ri­ble

The Prince George Citizen - - FRONT PAGE -

This is a let­ter to the city and who­ever came up with the plans for build­ing the new seat­ing in the Kin 3 arena.

The old seat­ing in Kin 3 was two-tiered bench style and quite ad­e­quate. The new seat­ing is ab­so­lutely hor­ri­ble.

The plas­tic seats are sit­u­ated too close to the glass and who­ever is watch­ing has no pe­riph­eral vi­sion at all. The ceil­ing heaters are aimed be­hind the seats and of no ben­e­fit. The seats are all at­tached and once you are seated it is hard to get back out. These seats are a fire haz­ard since there is only a break ev­ery 10 seats.

This arena hosts many kids’ prac­tices and games and many fam­ily mem­bers come to watch. I be­lieve the amount of sup­port for play­ers in Kin 3 will drop since it is very dif­fi­cult for se­niors to move in and out of the seats, there is min­i­mal room to move be­tween the seats and the glass, small chil­dren can­not see over the height of the boards, there is far less seat­ing avail­able and any­one who is large can­not fit in the seats at all.

It is ob­vi­ous who­ever came up with this de­sign has never been in a hockey arena or ever watched a game of hockey in their life. City of PG, please re­move these seats and get a new plan. Kim Hutchin­son

The re­port hedges that ad­di­tional elec­tri­cal ca­pac­ity is not likely go­ing to be re­quired any­time soon. I read it as at least 25 years in the fu­ture; as in­ter­est­ingly Hy­dro is yet to in­stall Revel­stoke’s sixth tur­bine.

Based on av­er­ag­ing the above num­bers, this ratepayer sees Site C con­tin­u­ing ver­sus stop­ping, as pay­ing an­other $8.2 bil­lion for a B.C. Lib­eral and B.C. Hy­dro boon­dog­gle. Patrick Egan Prince Ge­orge
