Wrong colours

Dear Mike:
The write-up in last Wednesday’s Times, “Minor hockey puts wrap on successful season,” was very interesting and as an old hockey fan, I congratulate the minor hockey association and all the coaches and dedicated players.
One portion of the article, however, was upsetting. I quote: “Next year, you are going to see that [local ‘AA’ competitive Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, and Midget teams all played under the Canadians’ name, which I think is great] continue with all of the teams in the Muskie colours. . . .”
As the wife of a former 1952 Fort Frances Canadians Allan Cup championship team player, I know some of those old players were pleased to pass on their colours of blue and the Fort Frances Canadians logo to the next generation of young hockey players.
The Muskie black-and-gold colours belong to the F.F. Muskie teams. The “blue jerseys” have been worn proudly for years by the local Midget ‘AA’ teams, by boys not connected to high school teams (some boys were not chosen; others chose not to try out for high school hockey).
People going to tournaments now know who the F.F. Canadians in blue are—they don’t need a colour change.
Ask the parents of these players what they think, then the decision should be made.
Thank you to the Times for printing my letter.
Signed,
Chris (Lovisa) Lowe
