Our class is working on letters to our local councilor about the anti-tobogganing legislation. Here is an excerpt from Reece’s letter:
“I have gone tobogganing every winter I can remember. This activity connects me during the holidays and throughout the winter with many of my friends and family. I believe the fun and excitement of flying down a hill on a sled is an experience all Canadians should be able to enjoy.
Our previous $5 bill depicted scenes of children playing ice hockey, skating, and yes, SLEDDING. This is the image we have created for ourselves as Canadians….. So ask yourself: is Hamilton not part of Canada?”
