Yorkton Terriers (SJHL) seeking financial relief from City of Yorkton

The SJHL's Yorkton Terriers have approached City council in Yorkton with a request for financial aid for their hockey club. 

Corvyn Neufeld, the President of the Terriers board of directors says that the team started the season with a roughly a 60-thousand dollar deficit before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Neufeld notes that they were seeking help financially from the city in three areas for a total of roughly 44-thousand dollars.

Yorkton Mayor Bob Maloney says they will be seeking a recommendation from administration for how to move forward as they know they'll be getting requests like this from another groups as well.

Neufeld said that doesn't concern them a whole lot. 

 Neufeld also adds that possible fundraisers the team was looking to profit including a Ladies Night, SHA Hall of Fame Banquet among others had to be postponed because of the pandemic.
