Sixteen students showed up at the M.D. 52 office in Provost at noon hour on Wednesday, May 2 asking for help to build a new rollerblade and bike park in Provost that could cost between $50,000 and $75,000.
Jamie Sullivan who is in Grade 10 said that he and his cousin Ian Sullivan started the petition and got signatures from Provost Public and St. Thomas Aquinas Schools, adding that they could have received more names.
One of the students told The News after the 89 name petition was presented to M.D. staff that they were hoping the M.D. would commit $20,000 to $25,000 to help build the facility.
