No Racquetball-Handball Courts.Saint John YM-YWCA

In June 2007, the Provincial Government of New Brunswick,Canada will take possession of the present Saint John YM-YWCA with plans to demolish it and build a new Justice Complex in its place .The YM-YWCA will then move to a temporary location until a new Y can be constructed. At present,the YM-YWCA Board of Directors and Staff decided that they will not replace the two Racquetball/Handball/Squash courts when the new Y is constructed.This will leave Greater Saint John with no courts at all,leaving anyone who wishes to play these sports no choice but to travel over an hour to another city. This will make it impossible for these sports to grow locally,guaranteeing the end of these sports in Greater Saint John.All happening at a time when the value of recreation and sport is being renewed by it citizens. By signing this petition, you would support a reversal to the decision above .Thank you in advance for your support.
