With regards to the increasing of recreation centre fees, I am a lifelong user of our rec centres in Saanich and feel that it is a very valuable asset to the community.
However, as you point out, the fees are the highest in the Greater Victoria area. As a pensioner I would like to see the fees reduced to encourage greater use of the facility. This would give more people access and would promote healthy options for all users. The savings to the medical system would offset the end costs. The provincial government should subsidize the centres.
