outside the boss

Hockey Canada chased after trouble. But the decision by the sports minister, Pascal Saint Ong, to suspend the granting of federal funds to the Canadian Ice Hockey Federation is only a slap on the wrist.

Madam Secretary, you should call for the resignation of President and Chief Operating Officer, Scott Smith, whose mandate is due to formally begin on 1Verse July.

Since 2014, Smith has worked as an assistant to Tom Rainey, who announced his retirement on April 20.

Renee knew the storm was coming. Because on the same day, the alleged victim of sexual assault by eight players from Canada’s junior team, in 2018, lodged a complaint with the police in London, Ontario.

If M.I St-Onge really wants to put an end to the old culture that still exists in Hockey Canada, they should ask for the organization to be restructured from top to bottom.

She should also take the opportunity to see how Quebec and the French are treated by the organization. You will see that we do not represent much to the leaders of the Union.

Hockey Canada is in dire need of rejuvenation and modernization. Its main players do not live in the age of the present century.

scandalous and disgraceful!

What we’ve seen and heard since the revelation of this vile story by Rick Westhead, TSN’s famous investigative journalist, is a direct resounding take on the Canadian Hockey League.

The image of our national sport takes a heavy blow. It is shameful that a national organization like Hockey Canada would choose to remain silent rather than confront the problem head on.

This sad episode is a replica of the scandal that occurred at the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2010 playoffs.

Sexual assault of rookie player Kyle Beach by video coach Brad Aldrich swept under the rug, General Manager Stan Bowman and coach Joel Quinville ending up losing their jobs.

President John McDonough left quietly before the case surfaced. He is the most wanted by the media in Chicago. It has completely disappeared from circulation. It’s as if it didn’t exist.

Where are their heads?

Eight John Does of Team Canada Junior 2018 have lived since the revelation of the relationship with the sword of Damocles hanging over their heads.

If there are any of them playing in the National League, they have to be in their little niche. They have to wake up and wonder if their identity has been revealed.

But what did they think?

Where are their heads?

Did they not follow the awareness and prevention programs offered by the teams and the leagues in which they play?

Were they listening?

Were they asleep?

Haven’t they heard of the #MeToo movement?

Do they believe in themselves above the law because they are athletes?

Do they live in the same world as us?

To all these questions there is only one answer. Their behavior is irresponsible, unforgivable, and unforgivable.

It’s as if they don’t care about anything and anyone, starting with their peers who respect good etiquette, teammates and opponents alike.

Players who follow the rules should be in good shape, and for good reason!

Teams do their job

In the Canadian Hockey League — the organization that oversees the Quebec Junior Hockey League, the Ontario Hockey League, and the Western Hockey League — teams have to announce their schedule on the road.

Oversight is particularly tight in qualifying. But some players fall through the cracks.

Let’s remember the incident in Quebec last season when two Victoriaville Tigres players abused a young woman after winning the President’s Cup.

Should we go so far as to have security guards follow the players or put one of them outside their bedroom door?

It’s not possible, but it’s good.

We are talking about young people who must take on their responsibilities and who are preparing to enter the world of work, whether as professional players or later in a trade or profession.

So be responsible!
