Major development in the disgusting Hockey Canada scandal

Published June 2, 2022 at 3:35 PM

The many calls to break the silence in the scandal that is engulfing Hockey Canada seem to have paid off. According to Alexandre Pratt of La Presse, the Minister of Sport, Pascale St-Onge, is demanding accountability from Hockey Canada in this matter.

"I want to know if taxpayers' money was used to cover up this gang rape story. So we're going to do a financial audit to make sure that's not the case."

"How did such an important sports organization in Canada ensure that the players who have these accusations against them are not accountable for their actions? And there are many of them in the NHL today. I think that's what Canadians want to know." - Pascale St-Onge

In a separate article published Thursday morning, Pratt informed us that St-Onge was "disgusted" and "disheartened" to learn the details surrounding the alleged gang rape of a young woman at the hands of eight junior hockey players after a Hockey Canada gala in 2018.

"When I read this story, I was absolutely horrified at the allegations being reported. I am also disheartened and disappointed to hear that stories of sexual assault still occur in sports."

"We're going to take the time to analyze the facts. We want to know more about the role the organization played. We are also evaluating the tools available to us to intervene in this type of case. It is a complex and worrisome file. It is a case that usually ends up before the civil or criminal courts. There was an out-of-court settlement that adds to the complexity of the file. - Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sport
