The article reports on the controversy behind the refusal of East Elgin Secondary School board to accept the donation of East Elgin Sportsmen's Club in Ontario. The issue started in 2005 when club president John Evers decided to discontinue the donation after the graduation of his daughter who was enrolled at the school's drama class. Evers did not expect that the school considered it as an issue, and refused to take any donation from the club.
