Local minor hockey benefits from gaming grants

Future is unclear, but past practice for gaming grants is encouraging

In follow up to last week’s story on the federal government’s recent press release heralding its funding of new programs aimed at making hockey safer (The News, page A34, Tuesday, March 27) Oceanside Minor Hockey president Greg Sabo said while he has not seen any new programs or funding that apply directly to OMHA, the local association does continue to benefit from B.C. Gaming Grant money.

“Our application for this year is in process, so I’m not sure what it will look like, but last year we received $50,000 and the year before was $40,000.”
