The boys and girls of summer will have another summer, thanks to a fee reprieve, according to InsideToronto
News that fee hikes for sports organizations to use city fields would be waived this year came as welcome relief to the Weston Baseball Association (WBA).
“If they had implemented that, it would have killed us,” said Roy Baksh, WBA president, noting the league would have had to pay an extra $15,000.
Like many involved in running recreational sports leagues across the city, the proposed $1.5-million fee hike came as a surprise to Baksh.
“It was like a kick in the teeth,” he said.
