Letter: Disabled sports fan frustrated by broken door at LEC

Editor: The Langley Event Centre is a beautiful well designed building, except for one area. The administration should be embarrassed that the Gate 3 handicap door’s mechanism has not worked since the season began.

I am handicapped, with a walker and oxygen. The door is quite heavy to open for a person like myself. Once in a while a good Samaritan will help with the door. There are seniors who have a hard time walking who have difficulty with this door.

I have emailed and phoned different people at the Langley Events Centre about this problem and I always get the same answer — “We will look into it.”

Hopefully, someone with authority will do something about this frustrating issue.

This is my second year as a season ticket holder.

Tim Gabert,
