In light of the suspension of a 10 year old hockey player by Hockey Alberta which is under the Hockey Canada umbrella, for playing in two different hockey leagues, it's time to end Hockey Canada's monopoly and threats regarding minor hockey.
10-year-old's suspension by Hockey Alberta being called 'heavy-handed'
It's time to open up minor hockey to more competition by getting the competition bureau to rule completely against Hockey Canada's issued action bulletin number A0945, the subject of which was “Outlaw Leagues – Leagues Operating Outside of the Auspices of Hockey Canada”. This includes the AAU, MAYHL & ORHL among others.
- "Any individual who participates (knowingly or otherwise) in “outlaw” programs after September 30 of the season in question (“the Cut-Off Date”) will lose all membership privileges with Hockey Canada for the remainder of that season......."
- "Hockey Canada and its member Branches across the country will make every effort to ensure that local minor hockey and female hockey associations in areas where “outlaw” leagues exist are not supporting these leagues in any manner whatsoever.........."
- The competitive act states Generally speaking, under section 79 of the federal Competition Act (the “Act”), abuse of dominance occurs when a dominant firm (or firms) engages in a practice of anti-competitive acts that results in a prevention or substantial lessening of competition. In Canada, it is not dominance per se that is prohibited, but rather the abuse of a dominant position. Well that seems to describe what Hockey Canada is doing in regards to other competitive leagues.
