hockeyrealist Posted October 3, 2022 Share Posted October 3, 2022 Looking for opinions on this story. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/amp/canada/article-hockey-canada-created-a-fund-for-sexual-assault-claims-documents/ It had been disturbing for some time, but the recent news of a second hush fund to settle legal claims that was kept secret during all of these past proceedings has me quite incensed. To know my youth hockey registration fees and now my families children's registration fees have been stashed away to keep creepy activity quiet is disturbing. To think they kept a second fund quiet during all of these interrogations, interviews, public hearing and grandstanding is amazing to me. That Hockey Canada leadership would attempt to pull this off while also stating they are confident that they have leadership who can oversee cultural change and a positive transition is a joke. I see no way for this organization to redeem themselves, I will never trust the entity again. I think they have tarnished a national sport, should be dismantled, all executives black balled from hockey and believe our national teams should all be shut down for at least two years while hockey Canada is rebranded, re established and re-funded by corporate money. All corporate sponsorship, zero player fees going towards anything but hockey. Maybe not charge players period, again let these corporate asshats who want their names associated with youth sports to step up. Between the branding of arenas, jerseys, helmets, commercials there is zero need to charge a struggling family a blanket “registration” fee when we all know where that money ended up. Let the corporations earn their good will and lifetime brand awareness with the kids by finding it all. All current money put back into youth hockey/access for minorities&under privileged kids. The establishment has festered cancer that can only be cured with compete removal of the tumour, eradicate the mass of human turds that have ruined a national treasure, had the gall to stand up and say they could right this ship while hiding another slush fund the whole time, shame on them. The Hockey Canada brand has been forever tarnished and time to hold these executives accountable. All of them should be gone, entity dismantled and rebuilt without full time executives earning a living off of a kids sport since they’ve proven they cannot be trusted. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
