Focus on impact and prevention of child sexual abuse says former NHL player
Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL player who was sexually-abused by his junior hockey coach, urged Canadians to understand the devastating impact of such abuse and work to prevent it.
Kennedy was part of a panel sponsored by Members of Parliament from all parties on Parliament Hill Feb. 5 that included the screening of Swift Current: The Sheldon Kennedy Story, a documentary chronicling not only the abuse he suffered from coach Graham James, but also his long and painful road to recovery.
