Communities across east central Alberta including Castor, Coronation, Consort, Delburne, Hughenden, Irma, Oyen and Provost gathered to demonstrate in front of local arenas to share their frustration of not being able to play sports and the toll the pandemic has had on children’s mental health Tues. Jan. 26.

Signs saying ‘Let us dance’, ‘Let us play’, ‘We miss hockey’ and more could be seen from the variety of signs shown from school children.
