City Turns Red and White


Rod Aubertin has been covering the Greyhounds for all season so it’s not surprising that he’s a tad excited about the Hounds in the playoffs. He put together a short video saluting the Hounds for a great regular season, meanwhile, the whole city is behind “our team” at Monday’s regular council meeting a proclamation was read last night:

Whereas for the first time in thirty years the Soo Greyhounds have secured the
number one spot in the regular season for their division; and
Whereas they will receive the Hamilton Spectator Trophy, presented to the Ontario
Hockey League team that places first in their division; and
Whereas on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28 the playoffs begin with home
ice advantage in Sault Ste. Marie as the Soo Greyhounds play the Saginaw Spirit;
Now Therefore Be It Resolved that the Mayor send a letter to the Soo Greyhounds
expressing our congratulations on their success in the regular season and
continued best wishes throughout the playoff schedule from City Council and assure
them of the support of the community; and
Further Be It Resolved that all businesses and Saultites be encouraged to wear or
display the colours of red and white to show our support to the team throughout the playoff season
