ban tobogganing – it’s too DANGEROUS

Reposted by Rick McCharles from GymnasticsCoaching.com

My home town Calgary is not quite as stupid as, for example, Hamilton. 🙂

But we’re pretty stupid. Socialist nations like Canada have governments with enough spare time to invent city bylaws like: “those who slide outside the city’s 18 approved hills could face a $100 fine”.

Calgary’s media has made much ado about the city’s tobogganing rules in recent weeks — to the point where Mayor Naheed Nenshi blamed “bored journalists” trying to stir up controversy.

Now Rick Mercer has taken it upon himself to poke a bit of fun at (the) bylaw ..

(For the record, the city does not recall ever giving out a tobogganing fine. Ever.)

Certainly no Calgarian I know pays any attention to tobogganing restrictions. We slide wherever we want. But with one eye out in case a Toboggan Cop shows up. 🙂

Over protective restrictions on youth activity contribute to child obesity. We want kids tobogganing more, not less.
