Canada’s sports minister Pascale St-Onge believes that the resignation of Hockey Canada board chair Michael Brind’Amour shows some cracks in the fortress of the organization’s culture of silence and toxic masculinity.

The minister made those remarks in Niagara Falls, Ontario, where she met with provincial and territorial sports leaders.

St-Onge has frozen Hockey Canada’s federal funding over its handling of sexual assault allegations made against members of previous junior men’s teams.

Hockey Canada Chair Michael Brind’Amour informed the board of his decision on Friday evening as the organization deals with intense scrutiny for its handling of sexual assault allegations and its culture of silence.

Hockey Canada says the board of directors will meet in the coming days to determine next steps and to appoint an interim Chair.

The next board election is scheduled to take place at the annual meeting in November 2022.
