RDCK corrects recreation survey numbers

The Regional District of Central Kootenay is apologizing for an error and any confusion caused.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay is apologizing for an error and any confusion it may have caused with transposed figures in recently released survey results.

“Information previously published on the Regional District of Central Kootenay website on the Resident Survey regarding the future of the Castlegar and District Community Complex contained an error,” said the RDCK on their website.

“The percentages showing levels of support in response to the question ‘To what degree do you support the enhancement of the Castlegar and District Community Complex with a new regulation size ice sheet to replace the Pioneer Arena’ were reversed.”

The misinformation switched the numbers of those who supported the ice expansion with those who did not. The correct figures are: 27 per cent strongly support, 26 per cent somewhat support, 22 per cent are unsure, 12 per cent somewhat oppose, 13 percent strongly oppose.
