Letter to the Editor - March 23: Helmets needed at skatepark

WE OFTEN see the kids in the skatepark at Brelsford Park riding around with no helmets.

They may have one tucked away to use when riding home but I doubt it.

With fines at $319 for riding without a helmet, one would think parents would be a bit more vigilant.

If a kid gets hurt in the skatepark, is council culpable?
