CCES Board Calls for Public Inquiry into Toxic Sport Culture
Ottawa – July 25, 2022 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) announced today that its board of directors has called on the Prime Minister of Canada and his Cabinet to take swift and meaningful action to address a crisis in Canadian sport. Athletes from sport after sport have been coming forward with stories of maltreatment, including sexual abuse, harassment, discrimination and racism.
Canadians are shocked and disgusted by these allegations, but if we do not change the structure and culture within sport, the abuse in sport will continue.
