Mr. Speaker, recently a decision was made by the Canada Games Council to remove men's softball from the 2009 Canada Summer Games.
I and many of my constituents are very concerned by this. I am told that removing men's softball from the games will result in lower levels of participation and dramatically reduce the funds needed to help build the sport.
As a lifelong player and fan of men's softball, I find this very troubling.
Will the minister commit to take action to reverse this decision?
