Communities just want numbers

"All that these areas wanted was accountability. This was asked for when regional recreation was reviewed about seven years ago."

It is a shame that the Beaver Valley and Warfield are ending their funding for recreation in Trail.

All that these areas wanted was accountability. This was asked for when regional recreation was reviewed about seven years ago.

Trail states that is impossible to give an itemized account of citizens from other areas.  I call BS.  I have witnessed the staff at the Aquatic Centre ask people for proof of residence.  With the computerized tills and the TRP cards this would be a simple programming and data entry issues.

Every local grocery store has thousands of items of inventory and prices programmed in to their tills.

The TRP cards and pass cards are the same as scanning a bar code to automatically enter data.  Reports then can be generated from the information.

Negotiations for recreation funding renewal may not have failed, if this information had been made available to your former partners in recreation.

I am sure if the shoe was on the other foot, Trail, would be asking for accountability and transparency.
