Dear Mayor and Council,
As a long time Langley Township resident I would like to add my voice to be considered in the planning of this proposed event. Langley Township is known for its equestrian centres and lovely farms.
I am, therefore, fully in favour of an event which celebrates these features. However, in my view such an event can be just as wonderful and enjoyable without the cruelty normally involved in a standard rodeo.
I would propose a more progressive event with fun for all and the sanction of the SPCA. This would show a positive example to children and adults, and avoid the protests and counter protests which will inevitably occur if a standard rodeo is held.
A successful uplifting event involving no animal cruelty would certainly give Langley Township something to be proud of and all citizens to enjoy guilt free.
I trust you will use wisdom in planning this event and make it a positive experience for all.
Darlene Bezalel, Murrayville
