Self-policing not working in Canadian sportFebruary 25, 2020
Can victims of abuse in sport trust sport organizations to carry out independent, qualified investigations?
Ideally, Sport Canada’s new suite of Safe Sport for All policies should be seen as a positive step towards addressing public concerns about harassment, abuse and discrimination in sport.
Yet, recent signs suggest the system is failing its victims.
Announced in March 2019, the safe sport policies are beginning to show serious cracks in its implementation. This is largely because the policies allow sport to police itself.
