SportsNet – CP – Hockey Canada governance review calls for more oversight, accountability

Final Report Hockey Canada Governance Review

Sal says that he’s barely scanned Justice Cromwell’s final Report so far, but Sal would like to see similar scrutiny for every Alberta and Canadian government A,B,C starting with the most useless in Alberta – Horse Racing Alberta.

Cromwell sent a memo to Hockey Canada’s Board of Directors on Oct. 10, one day prior to the mass resignation of the board and CEO Scott Smith. “While I acknowledge the dedication and tireless work of the current members of the Board, my view is that the best interests of Hockey Canada would be served if all directors retired from office when their current terms expire at the Dec. 17 annual meeting of Members and not put their name forward for re-election,” he wrote.

Sal says you don’t need an abacus to figure out who’s under scrutiny. Take the team roster of who was in London that night less the players who have issued exculpatory statements leaves those under suspicion. Not even as complicated as Euclid.

Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.
