YOUR LETTERS Kin 3 seats horrible
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
