Ontario curlers are getting hostile.

The on-going conflict between the Ontario Curling Association and the Canadian Curling Association is an unneeded distraction to Olympic curling. The dispute is enraging club curlers who want this to end.

Two local curlers on different teams who don't want to be identified are thinking about suing the OCA if this dispute hurts their chances to advance to a national. Elsewhere, there is now an online petition which as of this writing has 500 signatures, urging OCA zone reps to act on their behalf to stop the dispute with the national body. You can see and sign the petition at http://tinyurl.com/stopthesuspension. Many curling club boards have also written both organizations.
