Save Canadas Strathcona Shooting Range sign now

We request that the City Council of Edmonton, Alberta and its Community Services Committee allow the Northern Alberta Shooting Association to continue operation of the Strathcona Shooting Range, and extend its lease indefinitely.

The Strathcona Shooting Range is a unique Canadian facility with a long history. Originally, it was developed with federal, provincial and local funds to host international shooting events, specifically the 11th Commonwealth Games in 1978. The continued value and viability of this sports venue is self-evident, as it will be used for the upcoming 2005 World Masters Games. Strathcona puts Edmonton on the International map as no other sports facility does.

Over the years, the Strathcona Shooting Range has been used extensively as a critical training facility to develop Canada's national competitors, preparing them for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games. There is no other comparable range in Canada. By closing this facility, Canada's athletes will suffer. Edmontons tourism industry and credentials as a world-class city will also suffer.

Accommodations to ensure compatibility of land use and limit lead contamination can be made as an alternative to relocating the range. All concerns can be met without the drastic step of re-allocation, since relocation essentially entails abolishment of this expensive facility.

As such, we respectfully request that the City Council of Edmonton reject its motion to terminate the Strathcona Shooting Range lease, and extend its lease with the Northern Alberta Shooting Association indefinitely.

    The Strathcona Shooting Range was built with Provincial and Federal money and is an outstanding facility of international standards. It is shortsighted and in appropriate to close it.
