Youth games not appropriate place for adults to get soused

On Tuesday, Oct. 12 we attended a Rockets vs Medicine Hat hockey game.

To the editor:

On Tuesday, Oct. 12 we attended a Rockets vs Medicine Hat hockey game.

We were appalled at the quantity of beer consumed by some spectators. In particular, two gentlemen (guzzlers) seated next to us downed five glasses each—approximately 60 oz of beer.

Does this amount of alcohol not put one over the .08 limit to drive, (although we do not know if they did)?

Has our local RCMP ever considered setting up a road side alcohol check outside of the event centre? We need not wait for the holiday season to enforce laws for our family’s safety.
