Lethbridge is in the big leagues now

Cardston High school announced their new rodeo academy programme. When comparing it with the Vauxhall baseball academy and the Warner hockey school, Todd Ojala, Vauxhall High principal, said the following:

“If you’re in a small community and you’re not trying to improve it and make it a better place we all know what happens. We all move to Lethbridge and there is no small community anymore.”

Maybe now that there’s proof we’re siphoning population and economy from other communities, we’ll start receiving more infrastructure dollars from the government.
