Jackman Chess Club Seeks Community Volunteers!

The Jackman Chess Club is actively seeking a parent or community volunteer to assist with weekly coaching.  If you have a good knowledge of the game of chess, are comfortable working with groups of students across the grades and are available once a week during lunch time – please contact Kamran Jaffray at or call 416-348-4354.

Think your parent or neighbor might be great in this role?  Please forward this information to them!  You don’t have to be an expert, but should have a good understanding of the game and the ability to share your knowledge with Jackman students. Our Chess Club has been a very successful and popular program in the past and we hope to offer this skillful and fun activity to students again this year.

While we understand that the City sees a need to charge fees to all recreation users on a cost recovery basis, one could argue that these services are covered by our property taxes. Therefore the question becomes: Where did the numbers come from for the cost recovery analysis? Is the budget estimate of $1.5M from permit fees a realistic number? The actual amount will most likely be significantly less. Therefore it would not be onerous for the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Department to absorb this until a proper process is put in place.We are requesting that Council:Direct Parks, Forestry and Recreation staff to withhold collection of fees for one year to give these organizations the opportunity to build the new permit fees into their registration fees.
