The high-profile sexual assault case against five former members of Canada’s World Junior team has re-sparked scrutiny over toxic hockey culture, something Hockey Canada CEO Katherine Henderson says the organization is taking very seriously.

Henderson, who took over the role from Hugh Fraser last year, told Global News that Hockey Canada is making big strides in thoroughly educating and training national team players in areas such as discrimination, harassment, abuse and consent.

“I do think we’ve done a very good job of making sure that people are quite aware of what those behaviours are. I think we can probably continue to look to improve upon that to make sure that actual behaviour changes (are) coming out of those programs,” she said. “But it is certainly an intent, and it’s certainly a place that we are going to be investing in heavily over the next little while.”

Neetu Garcha has the details.
