We are writing in response to the comments made by Christine Ashcroft in the paper on Friday, Aug. 21 with regards to our recent bottle drive.
It is unfortunate that a fundraising event was marred by a misunderstanding that had no ill intent. Any comments made were not meant to be malicious and there was no intention to create any discontent or conflict.
This issue has nothing to do with the Team Canada dancers from Campbell River. They do not take anything for granted, greatly appreciate all the support they have received, and know their success is backed by our fantastic community.
These kids work extremely hard and will proudly represent Canada in Italy.
