The Right to Skate - Kids should be allowed to choose their coach and club

324 Signatures Goal: 500

The Verve Academy of Skating is located in Hamilton, Ontario. The school has applied to Skate Canada for sanctioning. Without being sanctioned the children of the Verve Canada are unable to compete in Skate Canada events which essentially means they can't compete. The Verve's application was objected to by two existing skating clubs.

Several letters were sent to both Skate Canada's and Skate Canada's Western Ontario Board requesting that all information and voting records related to this matter be disclosed. The request to review this information was denied by both and was characterized as ill-timed and inappropriate. Furthermore by requesting this information that parent's were accused of creating a "make work" project. Skate Canada is the National Governing Body for Figure Skating receiving significant government funding. It is imperative that this organization be transparent in its decision making and communication with the Canadian public. By signing this petition you are supporting that the following issues be immediately addressed by Sport Canada and Skate Canada: 1. Skate Canada events should be eligible to all Canadian children and not require them to be a member of a sanctioned club. 2. Skate Canada must make available all information and records relating to application requests available for review. 3. That all negative impact statements be accompanied by a current market study. 4. That the Verve Academy of Skating be immediately granted sanctioning by Skate Canada.
