Mr. Speaker, the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League meets all the requirements for having true amateur status but was singled out for an audit.
The community owned teams, backed by hundreds of volunteers and fans, need to have some questions answered. They are tired of the rhetoric and words that provide no answers to their concerns.
The following four questions need an answer.
First, is there any other amateur hockey league in all of Canada that was subjected to the same audit?
Second, was any community amateur player ordered to pay fines other than those in Saskatchewan?
Third, was any community operated amateur team outside of Saskatchewan ordered to pay fines to the CCRA?
Fourth, why was the same audit not carried out in other provinces?
There are thousands of people who have waited almost a year for these answers.
