Yesterday two very important steps were announced ...
by our Prime Minister no less ...
Go to CTV.ca
Reference ... "Sheldon Kennedy"...
Sheldon was a major player in the NHL.
Several years ago he went public about abuse at the hands of
his very high profile coach ... sending him to jail.
Other guys came forward too.
Since then he has worked tirelessly on our cause and
this is about a major commitment here in Canada,
backed by the Federal Government, to help
boys/men who were abused.
Reference ... NHL ... (National Hockey League)
They have announced a 'zero tolerance' policy on homophobia in the league.
I believe they are the first to announce that, and a few other major league sports organizations are to follow soon.
Granted ... this isn't going to help us directly ...
but it will help the boys of today ... and tomorrow.
Experience is a brutal teacher.
