Hockey Canada: Canadian sentiments over allegationsOUS News

A new survey by Nanos Research is shedding light on the impact Hockey Canada’s handling of sexual harassment allegations has had on the organization and the sport.

Most Canadians said they were outraged that a portion of the player registration fee was used by Hockey Canada to maintain a fund for uninsured payments, including sexual harassment settlements.

Marcia Novo, hockey parent of The Pass, Mann’s three sons, said, “When you’re paying the fees you’re hoping it’s going toward things that are directly benefiting the kids and Obviously this does not benefit the children.”

A survey of 1,038 people commissioned by CTV News and The Globe and Mail found that 84 percent were opposed to, or somewhat opposed to, using a portion of the fee to pay for allegations of sexual assault.

73 percent said they feel angry about the situation.

“It’s really a non-starter for most Canadians,” Nick Nanos of Nanos Research told CTV News Channel on Friday.

Hockey Canada has just announced a review of the rule and has already vowed to stop using fees to pay.

Because of the way it handled the mass sex allegations leveled against some members of the 2018 Canadian World Junior Hockey Team, the organization filed a lawsuit in May with the woman coming forward before fully investigating the matter, that too. has come within its scope.

Nanos told CTV News Channel, “This shows that this particular issue is a major issue and has had a materially negative impact on how Canadians view hockey players and it is significant enough that hockey is for Canadians.” how important it is.”

Ninety-nine percent of respondents said they view sexual misconduct as a potential cultural problem in the player development league that feeds the NHL, while only 11 percent said it is not a problem.

Data from the Nanos Research Poll asked whether sexual misconduct in hockey is a cultural problem.

Meanwhile, women were more likely than men to see sexual misconduct as a problem in hockey.

“It feels like it’s very embedded in the culture of hockey,” Novo said.

Other hockey parents CTV News spoke to in Winnipeg on Friday said they are not happy with the way their fees are being used and want more transparency from Hockey Canada, saying they have no way of taking their kids out of the game. No plans because it’s a game they love and enjoy.

Fifty-five percent of survey respondents said it would not affect their kids’ chances of playing hockey, while 39 percent said their kids were less likely to sign up.

Hockey Winnipeg President Daryl Fowler said there is a need for more transparency about the money Hockey Canada collects and if it is not, Hockey Winnipeg may consider options to recoup the fees sent to the organization. .

“We know everyone is discussing this when everyone gets together and it’s an issue that needs to be resolved,” Fowler said. “Hockey is a great sport and it’s giving it a black eye right now.”

Novo said she won’t stop her sons from playing hockey, but wants to change the culture of the sport.

“That’s where I think I need to work,” Novo said. “This is where a lot of parents need to work out that we can no longer condone this behavior and perhaps we have to speak out against it.”

When players are just starting out in the game, she thinks something has to happen at the local level to root out any problems.

Hockey Manitoba said on Friday that it is holding its annual meeting of its board of directors later this week and may have more to say on the issue on Monday.
