The decision to participate in REP was made with the priority of health and safety for our community, in addition to the sustainability of our not-for-profit organization. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the LBCA Board of Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org and local MLA, Richard Gotfried at email@example.com
We realize this is a polarizing situation and ask for your patience. Violent, abusive, or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated at the facility, on social media platforms, over the phone or in email communications and could result in a ban from the facility or the involvement of Calgary Police Services.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you soon.
