Thank you, Madam Chair.
I want to start by saying there's no question that Canadians love hockey. It's something we've always been proud of as Canadians, but over the last few months, I've seen more anger, disappointment and people who are just ashamed of what's been going on.
Your responsibilities as leaders in the system go way beyond just the boardroom and the management of the boardroom. It's interconnected with the dreams of Canadians and the national spirit.
We've all fought...every single one of us here has done something to promote sport and promote hockey. My municipality tried to stop road hockey. I fought against that. I fought against 77 municipalities. Hockey and sport are so important to Canadians because it helps build young people. It gives them the skill sets they need to continue moving forward.
My first question is for any of you. Do you believe there's a crisis in hockey today? If so, why?

Do you think there's a crisis in hockey right now? Does your organization have a crisis?

Do you know who the Scarborough Sharks, Leaside Wildcats and the Etobicoke Dolphins are?

They're local teams right around the corner from where I represent. They're teams made up of young women. I would consider them shareholders in your organization. Would you agree?

If I give you just 30 seconds to explain why Hockey Canada and the organizations representing hockey have failed young women like them, what would you say?

Let's talk about culture within your organization. You have an action plan that's going to change the culture within your sport. It says here in the plan overview—this is like one of the first statements made in the plan—“Hockey Canada is committed to driving cultural change and addressing the toxic behaviour that exists in corners of the game.”
What do you mean by “corners”? Is this a systemic issue, or is this just an isolated, small part of...? Let's say the corners are less than 10% of the field of play or the ice. Is this issue a systemic issue throughout the entire organization, or is it just an isolated issue that represents a corner of the larger, bigger picture?

Do you see this as a systemic issue within your sport?

When we talk about cultural change, obviously there is a big issue of sexual assault and sexual misconduct, and a cultural shift that has to take place there. Do mental health and racism fit into this toxic culture as well?

Thank you very much, Madam Chair. I appreciate the opportunity.
I want to continue with the action plan and with talking about cultural change to take on systemic issues within the organization.
Mr. Smith, perhaps I can ask you. The CHL has 1,400 players. Is that correct? How many players do you have?

You have 60 teams. In the training that exists currently, I know that one of the pillars is education. In your current educational training, is it mandatory for every single player to get the respect in sport training and the abuse program training and the other forms of training that were mentioned earlier today? Is it mandatory for everyone?

You know what? It's for Hockey Canada and the action plan. Sorry.

Someone mentioned that it would be mandatory for only the elite athletes. Does that mean the national team only? What happens to the remaining thousand-plus players across the country?
This is for anyone who can answer the question.
Is there mandatory training for all 1,400 players across the country, at this point?
