I understand that Canada still has certain ties to the UK. The force feeding of all the royal wedding garbage as actual news at the expense of everything else made that perfectly clear if it was ever in doubt. But friends or not, ties or not, that doesn’t mean go ahead and start adopting their style of ridiculous health and safety crap. Accidents happen. It’s part of being a kid, or being around them. I’ll spare you the rest of the rant about how adults are taking all the fun out of being a kid, and even out of being an adult. I won’t even get into the stupidity of how all these people can look themselves in the face and wonder why all the kids are getting fat now. Hello, it’s kinda your fault, morons!
The principal of Earl Beatty Public School banned the balls this week after a parent recently suffered a concussion from being hit in the head with a soccer ball.
The principal, Alicia Fernandez, banned hard balls, claiming they’re dangerous.
“Kids were coming in complaining of injury, or being scared,” she said.
The ban went into effect two weeks ago.
Students can bring sponge or other soft balls to play with, but soccer balls, footballs, baseballs and even tennis balls are not allowed for safety reasons.
