President Mike Bola expressed the community’s disappointment in the media when Mayor Doug McCallum had staff cancel the Cloverdale Ice Arena project which was already underway. The new road was already torn up and being redesigned when the Mayor made the announcement. The reasons cited by Mayor and some council members for cancelling the ice arena were unacceptable to the community of Cloverdale/Clayton Heights said President Bola. Rallies took play with other stakeholders such as the Cloverdale Minor Hockey Association who were affected the most by the Mayor’s decision. The community was not consulted or aware of the cancellation until it was presented to Mayor and Council during the Draft Financial Plan review. President Mike Bola spoke at the public hearing to relay the disappointment and reasons for allowing the project to continue. President Bola also pointed out that the stats provided by the staff were not correct and were in fact misleading.
