Sunday, November 16th, 2008

All you Vancouver floor hockey players need to head down to Sears, apparently, where you can get a no-obligation, in home estimate for… Vancouver floor hockey? Huh? Exactly.

Children Sports Participation on the Decline

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

New data suggests that only 47% of children in Toronto and Vancouver are sport participants. Also, those of higher income families were more likely to be playing organized sports than those of lower incomes. The top three sports across Canada, for children between 5 and 14 years of age, were soccer, swimming and hockey. More at cbc.ca.
