Description
"The closing of recreational facilities across Canada and policing of spaces such as basketball courts and sports fields by bylaw officers has been a major blow to the people who rely on them most – the ones without backyards, summer cottages or tennis club memberships. Service providers and those who research the socio-cultural dimensions of sport stress that the impact goes far beyond mere restlessness – there could be serious long-term effects on mental health and safety and a lost sense of community that should be weighed against the COVID-19 risk."
