Re: “Kwantlen axes varsity athletics,” The Leader, July 15.
Isn’t it sad that Surrey is struggling with efforts to increase youth involvement in sports and here we have a university cancelling their varsity sports?
My daughter is one of these students affected by this devastating news.
Over the past year, I have witnessed a group of young ladies that have not only been committed to their varsity soccer team, but to being very involved in the community from volunteering to feed the homeless, to organizing and operating fundraisers to aid in programs at the university.
Should this situation not be reconsidered and revisited to see what the real meaning is to why athletic programs would be cancelled?
Many young citizens will be negatively impacted if this is to be carried through.
