Why not name rink after Stompin’ Tom?

Dear editor,
A while ago, I submitted the name of Stompin’ Tom Connors to be used for the new middle school in Georgetown.
It was never choosen, perhaps for the better. Stompin’ Tom and formal education would have been an uneasy association.
But it is time this community honoured a great Canadian that called Halton Hills home for many years. The town has immortalized Canadian authors Berton, Atwood, and Mowat with street names in this town despite having no connection with this community. Therefore, I am sure we can do better for Tom Connors.
Let’s see what would be appropriate? Of course. We have new hockey rinks being built. No doubt the Mold-Masters name must remain. But what about the rinks, presently known as A,B,C, and D. Surely one could be named the Stompin’ Tom Rink.
Perhaps a second could be named the Bob Goldham Rink. Of course the downside is that would leave just two rinks to be named after local politicians. Oh well.
To borrow badly from Stompin’ Tom. It is the good old hockey game played on a Georgetown Saturday night, and my back won’t hurt when I hear that name, the Stompin’ Tom Ice Rink.
