Bring Mixed Martial Arts To The Province of Ontario
Dear Premier Dalton McGuinty,
We, the residents of Ontario, as well as international visitors to Ontario, hereby sincerely request that your government take the necessary steps to sanction and regulate the sport of Mixed Martial Arts in our province.
We ask that you task the The Honourable Sophia Aggelonitis, Minister of Consumer Services, as well as Ken Hayashi, the Ontario Athletic Commissioner, to review the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts, as listed on the Associtation of Boxing Commission's website, which the Ontario Athletic Commission is a member of, and to join the rest of the municipalities and provinces who have already blessed this safe, viable and profitable sport.
We, hereby believe, that under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts, the athletes who choose to compete in MMA, can do so in a safe and regulated manner.
We, the residents, visitors, competitors and consumers of Mixed Martial Arts have traveled, competed and spent millions of dollars outside of Ontario to support the sport of MMA, but we hereby request we are granted the right and ability to support the sport in our own province.
We hope that through your research, as well as that of The Honourable Sophia Aggelonitis and Ken Hayashi, you will find that the sport can be a safe one for all it's competitors, both male and female, as well as for each and every one of it's consumers, and by sanctioning and regulating the sport of MMA, the millions of dollars that have been spent outside of the province since 1993, can now be spent within the great province of Ontario.
The Residents of, and Visitors to, the Province of Ontario
