Back­fire as Port aux Basques coun­cil adopts two-tier reg­is­tra­tion pol­icy for Bruce II pro­grams

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - Year In Review -

The rel­e­vant por­tion of the Gulf News ar­ti­cle con­sisted of only three lines and was lit­tle more than a house­keep­ing note – a brief men­tion of a pol­icy change re­gard­ing reg­is­tra­tion pro­ce­dures for some pro­grams at the Bruce II Sports Cen­tre in Port aux Basques. What fol­lowed was an al­most 1,000-com­ment long dis­cus­sion in a lo­cal Face­book group that left bit­ter feel­ings and di­vided some res­i­dents of the South­west Coast.

At a town coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day, Jan. 23, the recre­ation com­mit­tee rec­om­mended adopt­ing a two-tier reg­is­tra­tion pol­icy for some chil­dren’s pro­grams, such as swim­ming and sum­mer sports.
