Okanagan golf resort permanently severs relationship with Hockey Canada | Globalnews.ca

An Okanagan golf resort is the latest organization to sever ties with Hockey Canada.

Controversy has been hounding the national organization for months after reports of sexual abuse surfaced in May, and how Hockey Canada established a fund to pay out sexual assault and sexual abuse claims.
