A Letter to the Editor from the Peterborough Examiner in Ontario, Canada...
As usual when I went to see the results of the ISU in Paris, there were no results of the figure skating competition printed in The Examiner. Skating is more than hockey sticks.
Our Canadian figure skaters received two golds, one silver and one bronze in Ottawa two weeks ago. In Paris, our Canadian skaters received more medals this past weekend. Why is The Examiner not covering these events? They are heading to the Olympics in 2010. Let's give them some support.
If a hockey team won a game it would be all over the sports pages. Please give equal press to figure skating.
