Thank you Dorval!

What an excellent afternoon!

After skating I took a drive over to Dorval City hall to see if a letter was waiting for me from Mayor Rouleau. It was ready.

The Mayor of Dorval deserves to be commended as he actually may be the first mayor in the world to ban mass participation athletic events, from the streets of his city, unless the participants are invited to raise funds for charity.

I expect that this letter will serve as the catalyst for other mayors to do the same. Now Le Tour de l’Ile de Montreal can not enter the West Island, as they were expecting to do. The outcome of this will likely mean that the 45,000 participants of Velo Quebec’s cycling events will be invited to raise funds for charity in 2009.

Velo Quebec has been refusing to link with charity for over 20 years.

Please get the petitions forwarded.  Please follow this link to get your petitions or follow the link on the right side bar.
