The Canadian government is serious about making improvements NOW.
Canada’s Sport Minister Pascale St-Onge is freezing Gymnastics Canada’s funding until the national federation signs on with the new Office of Sports Integrity Commissioner.
St-Onge said Thursday that she informed GymCan’s CEO Ian Moss last week that the federation needed to accelerate their process to sign up, or their funding would be suspended until they completed that requirement.
The minister said it was effective immediately.
