Hockey Canada recently approached major sponsors to gauge whether ousting some top executives and board members would be enough to win back their support – and sponsorship dollars. But sponsors have said wholesale change is needed at the organization. https://t.co/56dg1LCasl pic.twitter.com/nQokKjAm12— Susan Krashinsky Robertson (@susinsky) August 23, 2022
This is a subscriber-only article linked, but the idea that Hockey Canada is trying to explore what the bare minimum they have to do in order to get sponsorship money back after having lost it for refusal to do the right thing doesn’t do well for the whole “we learned from mistakes and want to do the right thing” kind of face the organization wants to put forward.
