Season ticket holders disappointed

We are extremely disappointed that the Bruins are leaving Chilliwack. We have held season’s tickets since year one and we have thoroughly enjoyed the WHL brand of hockey. Even more disappointing is the manner in which the Bruins’ ownership has handled the sale of the team. Instead of being forthright with the season’s ticket holders and fans in Chilliwack, they have permitted the news to play out in the media. One would think the owners would have had the common courtesy to inform and explain to their long term supporters their decision to sell the team and relocate it to another city. This is not an acceptable way to treat your fans.

Even more disturbing is the WHL Board of Governors’ role in removing the Bruins from Chilliwack  knowing full well that there is a buyer prepared to keep the team here. It opens the door to the speculation that there was a prior mutual agreement between the league and the Bruins ownership to place a team in Victoria. By choosing to remain silent on the matter the WHL brings their crediblilty as a league into question. If they can treat Chilliwack in such a cavalier fashion, then other WHL cities  need to beware.

A big thank you to all the players, coaches, staff and volunteers who have been part of the Bruins organization during their time in Chillliwack. It was a great run and we wish all of you success in your future hockey careers or whatever you choose to do in life.
