Got game? 

To the editor,

The decision to pull out of the poker game called "the Commonwealth Games Bid" was the right one. Now, what to do with all that money being tossed about like confetti? Well, may I suggest that now the money is not being spent on one special group of people called athletes, that it be diverted to another group with special needs—the disabled. There are programs for the disabled that cry out for funding!

Advocates for the disabled have constantly gone to the government for money to finance well-planned programs for their clients only to be rejected. There can be no doubt that the disabled are treated far differently than others in this province.

Give the leftover money to deserving groups.
