East York families in line and out of luck

Rod Malos was number 41 in line when his wife called to tell him to come home. While he waited his turn, she’d successfully enrolled their children in summer swimming and soccer programs online.

On his way out of the East York Community Centre, moments later, Malos handed his ticket to a man who had just arrived at the end of the line. By the time number 41 was called, less than an hour after registration had begun, however, the man who received Malos’s ticket was out of luck.

On March 9, dozens of people lined up early at the community centre, waiting to register their children for spring and summer recreational programs in East York.
