Pickleball for all
Pickleball has become a huge sport in the States and Mexico and in the West in Canada....it is time for the people in this area get access to this growing sport.
This is another reason for municipalities to work and play together. Officialdom is keeping us back. You have to live in the area to have access to each other's assets, to use the libraries and sport facilities.
The enormous St. Lazare and Vaudreuil-Dorion libraries are not available to Hudsonites, one pays for the one in Rigaud. It is not practical for each area, not matter how small, to provide for themselves these expensive facilities. We should band together.
The communities of Como, Hudson, and Hudson Heights banded together years ago. I think it is time for all communities in this area to band together so as not to have to fund separate public facilities.
We need pickleball courts NOW!
