I just completed a personal project of Myles Christman. He's a young man who had a dream and it was crushed by BC School Sports bureaucracy. It's quite a tragic story and I felt compelled to write and let the Ministry of Education, our Premier, and other orgs involved know that they should have taken exception to Myles case. Mona Mattei published the original story last Monday and recently published my follow up letter in her publication, The Boundary Sentinel.
Unfortunately, the BCSS has ruined Myles' chance of playing in league this year and due to low participation by other students the school will no longer have enough to field a team for next year. Myles will be unable to show off his talent to scouts which would potentially grant him a full scholarship. This kind of discrimination of against children in rural schools has to stop!
