SIX NATIONS – The Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council says they are declaring a moratorium on all development along the Haldimand Tract — unless those developers make financial accommodations to the hereditary chiefs through the Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI). A handful of hereditary chiefs and their supporters called in local and national press to make the declaration on Tuesday morning in front of the Onondaga Longhouse. "Developers, they need to stop digging in our land and to come forward now and do the process that's right. There's no more taking our lands. This stuff has to stop,” said hereditary chief Roger Silversmith. He said that developers must go through the HDI, and the hereditary chiefs properly compensated for all development along the Haldimand Tract. “The Haudenosaunee intend to exercise our jurisdiction over our lands and waters in a way that maintains the

delicate balance between Creation and humans, focusing on sustainability and responsiveness to climate change to protect waterways and ecologically sensitive areas,” said HCCC in a statement. The declaration highlights the ongoing tug-of-war between Six Nations hereditary chiefs, the community’s 100 year-old system of elected leadership, or the Mohawk Nation — duking out who has true jurisdiction over the community’s land rights. Those divisions were once again thrust into the spotlight this past year when a small group of Six Nations people stopped construction of the McKenzie Meadows housing development in Caledonia, in a land occupation now dubbed Land Back Lane. The project was approved by the elected council after community consultations revealed no substantial opposition. The elected council was compensated financially and a parcel of land donated back to the community as an accommodation. The community’s hereditary leaders are now saying no development can proceed along the Haldimand Tract without going through

HDI and making financial accommodations for the hereditary chiefs. A similar attempt to assert jurisdiction took place in the late spring of 2019, when HDI supporters attempted to forcibly halt the completion of the Niagara Reinforcement Line, a hydro line project that compensated the elected council and not HDI. In that situation — HDI entered into talks with Hydro One — saying they would call off the protesters on the condition that the energy company tear up its’ accommodation agreement with the elected system and enter into an exclusive compensation agreement with the hereditary chiefs. This is the latest declaration of jurisdiction in an ongoing story that dates back to the federal government, deposing hereditary leadership in 1924. In 1923, following decades of community uproar about mismanagement of funds and abuse of power by hereditary chiefs, the federal government conducted an inquiry into the business of managing the reserve. Community members advocated to the federal government for help installing an elected

system. The 1923, a Six Nations inquiry, led by the federal government, found that the hereditary leadership did not manage the community fairly. As a result, Canada removed the hereditary system of installing leaders and instead transitioned the community to an elected band council system under the Indian Act. In recent history, HCCC has made efforts to build it’s own administrative functions to assert their belief that they are the sole and rightful holders to land rights along the Haldimand Tract. They created HDI, a development company that has routinely competed with the elected council for financial compensation in exchange for acquiring hereditary chiefs consent for development along the tract — something they say can’t be properly granted by the elected leadership. The Haldimand Treaty of October 25, 1784 set aside approximately 950,000 acres along the Grand River for “the Mohawks and such others”. The HCCC says that treaty gives their organization exclusive land rights over six miles on either side of the entire span of the Grand River. Today, the size of the

reserve is approximately 5% of the lands described in the original proclamation. A total of 38 municipalities exist along the Haldimand Tract. “The development – it’s uncontrolled,” said HCCC Secretary Leroy Hill at Tuesday’s press conference. “It’s not being resolved in a just manner. They just keep issuing permits on unresolved lands and in the meantime we’re losing our ability to expand for our families. The leaders have been mulling this over for awhile.” Cayuga Chief Roger Silversmith said, “Land is a birthright. With these land rights come specific responsibilities. Land is envisioned as a dish with one spoon. We can all take from the land...but we must ensure the land remains healthy enough to provide for the coming generations.” “We understand that we share these lands with our Allies and we all agree to uphold the agreements between our people to live in peace, friendship and trust," the HCCC said in a statement. "Our vision for the future is self-determined, based in our inherent right to protect our lands for future generations of Haudenosaunee children.” PM42686517

Food as Medicine – With Chef Rich Francis DONNA DURIC

donna@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

Indigenous foods not only bring people back to their roots, they help you live longer, healthier and assist with ensuring Indigenous food sovereignty – an issue that came to the forefront during the Covid-19 pandemic this past year. That’s according to renowned Gwich’in and Tuscarora Chef Rich Francis, who hosted a live demonstration making “tomahawk steaks” in his backyard over an open fire with his two sons as part of Six Nations’ Community Wellness Series this past Saturday. Francis, owner and founder of Seventh Fire Hospitality Group, has made it his life’s mission to bring attention and awareness to Indigenous foods and Indigenous food sustainability. He was a top contender on the competition reality TV show “Canada’s Top Chef” and he parlayed that fame into a personal business enterprise with national and international fans and followers who are fascinated by his unique style of “Indigenous Fusion” cuisine.

The ingredients he uses are definitely not part of the everyday palate on North America. Whale blubber, seal meat, organ meats, and game meats are often central pieces of his unique creations. “I specialize in modern Indigenous cuisine,” said Francis, who frequently executes his craft on outdoor barbecues and firepits with his sons. Last Saturday, he treated the community to a live showcase searing some delicious medium-rare bison and grilled vegetables on an outdoor barbecue while talking about his craft and vision for the future of Indigenous cuisine in Canada. Besides getting people back to their traditional roots and reducing reliance on pre-packaged foods, Francis also believes Indigenous food knowledge can help reduce the high rates of diabetes and heart disease that disproportionately affect Indigenous people in Canada. He sees food as medicine. “I think now more than ever people want to feel connected to what they’re eating and also the people that they’re sharing it with.” Francis was assisted

by his eldest son Hayden, who just graduated from culinary college, and his youngest son Brayden during the outdoor cooking demonstration. Francis demonstrated some techniques for cooking the perfect bison tomahawk steak – he scored the meat a number of times. Scoring creates more surface area, he said, which equals more flavour, he said. The steaks were seared with an herbed butter, using plants he grew in his garden last year: sage, oregano, rosemary, and chives, along with crushed garlic, salt and pepper, brushed onto the steaks. Francis loves cooking over a fire. “Working with fire allows you to be in touch with yourself as a cook,” he said. “I’m not a restaurant chef. I’m out in the elements. I’m out filming. It allows you to be a more expressive cook. I like the challenge of it, as well.” Cooking over a live fire is his signature. Francis was on the road a lot for his work before the pandemic hit. Suddenly, that ground to a halt when restrictions on travel came into effect. Work wasn’t coming in. Gigs were getting postponed. He almost went back to

carpentry work, which is what he was doing before pursuing his passion for cooking. “I’m glad I didn’t do it. For whatever reason, food has saved my life more than I care to admit. It’s been that one constant in my life that has never let me down. I did stick with it. That’s when I started cooking; to decolonize.” He started doing Zoom workshops with First Nations and non-First Nation communities throughout Canada and the U.S.   “It caused me to reevaluate everything in general. Once the province opens back up again, I’m going to go back to my destination dinners. It (Covid) took away a lot but it forced me to narrow down my vision and think outside of the box. I know the hospitality industry took a huge hit. A lot of my friends are dealing with that right now.”  Francis encourages people to learn more about Indigenous food and Indigenous food sovereignty. “Try to get reconnected with your food sources. Know where your food comes from. As soon as the province opens up, we’re looking to push the envelope more and more this year.”

Six Nations family builds hospice DONNA DURIC

donna@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

An anonymous donor has agreed to build a five-bed hospice on Six Nations with hopes to turn the keys over to the community by January 2022. That gives the planning committee and Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council and staff about nine months to find five acres of land for the ambitious project, as well as securing ongoing operating costs for the first hospice of its kind on a First Nation in Canada. A trio of Six Nations nurses has been working with the family and local health representatives to plan the much-needed hospice on Six Nations, saying the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to provide Six Nations people a culturally-appropriate place to obtain palliative care in their final days close to home.

Since January 16, a total of 16 home and community care clients have passed away, council heard at a general meeting last Tuesday. “Palliative care is more important than ever in a pandemic,” said Caroline Taylor-Hill. “It has highlighted the need to expedite a hospice and additional resources.” It’s difficult when a person is reaching the end of life and communication becomes difficult because the caregiver is not from the Six Nations community, she said. A local survey also highlighted a community-wide desire to have a Six Nations-based hospice. “Residential hospices allow people to spend their last days where they choose in a caring homelike setting surrounded by family, friends and compassionate care,” she said. It would be the first Indigenous hospice in Canada.  The hospice committee will include traditional and western partners to provide and plan care

models for clients. The unique hospice will incorporate traditional Haudenosaunee culture into its care plan and will include a garden full of traditional herbs and medicines on site. The anonymous donor wants to honour a family member’s life by building the hospice, said Home and Community Care Nurse Verna Fruch. The family is prepared to provide all building materials, as well. She said the family wishes to remain anonymous at this time but, “They’ll build it wherever we want it and however we want it.” The committee is planning for a 10,000 sq. foot space for the hospice. It will include a pharmacy, secure storage of medications, record storage, a lounge area, a bariatric room, a family common area, a meeting room, counseling office, laundry and communications room. It will also include 2,000 sq. feet of outdoor living space.

Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs, Lake Babine Nation get funding from B.C. government VICTORIA — The B.C. government has reached an agreement to give Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs $7.2 million in funding to support the implementation of their rights and title. The government says in a statement the three-year funding will support the chiefs' efforts to reunify members of the Wet'suwet'en nation, which includes six First Nations.

It will also support the revitalization of Wet'suwet'en governance structures in areas like water stewardship and wildlife programs, and renovations at a former school that will be used as a governance and administration centre. The provincial government says it has also reached an agreement with the neighbouring Lake Babine Nation to accelerate the distribution

of $22 million previously planned over several years. The government says the lump-sum payment means the nation can make larger-scale economic development and forestry investments sooner and create a wealth plan to grow the investment. The government says it's a new, flexible model for future agreements between Canada, British Columbia and First Nations.

Why words matter: The negative impacts of racial microaggressions on Indigenous and other racialized people By Iloradanon Efimoff ``Don't you go to school for free?'', ``You don't pay taxes!'', ``Do you live in a teepee?'' are things Indigenous students have heard. In some cases, there is widespread agreement on what racism is. For example, most people would agree that restricting a racial group's right to vote in a federal election is racist. (Indigenous people were the last to gain full voting rights in Canada in 1960.) But in other cases, the agreement is scant _ the quotes at the top of this page represent some of those cases. They are examples of racial microaggressions. Racial microaggressions are often considered ``minor.'' What are racial microaggressions? Racial microaggressions are incessant, subtle forms of racism that can be verbal, behavioural or environmental. Racial microaggressions have been described as ``racial indignities.'' As a mixed-race Haida woman, I've been routinely told I ``don't look Indigenous'' or I'm ``not like other Indigenous people'' because I was born with my mother's skin tone instead of my father's. This is an example of a racial microaggression. Microaggressions may seem small or ``micro,'' but as incessant forms of racism, they can have big impacts on mental health, physical health and social life.

One study of university students found that non-Indigenous university students regularly asked Indigenous university students if they lived in teepees. Another study found that Indigenous students were stereotyped by others as drunks, addicts or on welfare. Daily hassles One way of looking at the impact of racial microaggressions could be to look at daily hassles. Daily hassles are defined as ``relatively minor, everyday problems such as commuting problems, family arguments or household repairs.'' The cumulative impact of daily hassles is linked to chronic health conditions like digestive problems, mental health conditions like depression and anxiety and even death. Some researchers have even found that daily hassles have a larger impact on health than major life events given their relentless nature. The concept of daily hassles show that small things can have big impacts. Racial microagressions and health Researchers have shown that racial microaggressions are associated with depression in Latino community members, in university students of Asian descent and create PTSD symptoms in Black participants. Microaggressions are also related to physical health outcomes. Experiencing racial microaggressions during the COVID-19 pandemic was

related to physical health issues and sleep troubles for Asians and Asian Americans. They're also associated with a whole host of other negative outcomes like substance use, anxiety, stress and even suicidal thoughts in many racialized groups. Although there is little quantitative research on the impacts of microaggressions on Indigenous people, qualitative research has indicated that Indigenous people feel disrespected, degraded, uncomfortable or like they have to hide their Indigenous identity after experiencing microaggressions. Microaggressions aren't just based on race Microaggressions can be based on many factors. Researchers have identified microaggressions based on gender, LGBTQ identity and ability. Experiencing microaggressions based on these other factors can have similar effects as racial microaggressions: for example, experiences of disability-related microaggressions were related to higher levels of anxiety in Canadian university students. A person can experience multiple types of microaggressions, due to the intersectionality of their identities. For example, an Indigenous woman who identifies as bisexual might experience race, gender and sexual orientation-related microaggressions all in one day. Based on

research on the impact of microaggressions and daily hassles, it is likely these combined experiences have negative impacts. What to do about them? What can people do about microaggressions? Freelance writer Hahna Yoon wrote a piece in the New York Times on how the targets of microaggressions might respond. These discussions are important because microaggressions exist and targets of them must have coping mechanisms. For example, people who experience microaggressions might share their experiences with others who have common experiences as a way to cope. However, focusing on the target's response misplaces the burden. A more equitable approach would be to put the onus of addressing microaggressions onto the perpetrators of the microaggressions. But there is relatively little research on this. One study found that white participants said they were less likely to engage in microaggressions after a day-long workshop on race, racism and racial microaggressions. The study provides hope to those who do this work, but more information is needed. Microaggressions cause harm. More research needs to be done to understand how best to prevent them. Thinking about how words matter might be a good place to start.

part of this.” On the ice, Nolan grew up on the Garden River First Nation, and played minor hockey in Sault Ste. Marie. He left home at the age of 16 to play junior hockey in Kenora, before returning to play for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League from 1976 to 1978. His passion, skill, and grit captured the attention of the Detroit Red Wings, who drafted him in 1978. After a brief stint in the Red Wings organization, which saw him raise the Calder Cup championship with the Adirondack Red Wings, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins. He appeared in 78 NHL games before having his career cut short by a serious back injury at the age of 26. Forced to retire, Nolan later landed his first coaching job in 1989 with the Greyhounds. After some tough seasons of not making the playoffs, Nolan was the head coach that led the team to threestraight Memorial Cup appearances, winning the national major junior A hockey title in 1993. A year after winning the Memorial Cup, Nolan jumped to the NHL, as an assistant coach for the Hartford Whalers. After one season with the Whalers, Nolan became the head coach of the Buffalo Sabres (1995-1997 and 2013-2015) and the New York Islanders (20062008).

Who’s really in charge in Indian Country? RACHEL A. SNOW

editor@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

First Nation Indigenous struggle with pandemic like circumstances every day in their fight for survival. The attacks to the original people are not openly visible unless you understand the enormity of threats attacking the original peoples on different levels, relentlessly. Canada is a government that publicizes propaganda to Canadians that paints the relationship between the First Nations Indigenous and mainstream as somewhat troubled but progressing. Following some politically correct verbiage about reconciliation, Canada releases enormous budgetary numbers. Surely if Canada is throwing $150 million at a First Nation Indigenous problems, then their needs are being met! Canada fails to tell the Canadian public that the 150 million is divided over 10 provinces and 3 territories so it is closer to ten million per territory or province and then further divided dependant on the number of First Nations in the province or territory so in Saskatchewan this $150 million becomes an $11 million

split between 74 First Nations who likely receive $150,000 at the community level. Further to this, the money is administered by Indian Affairs who take the first administration fee and this follows down the disbursement so the actual reserve receives a piddly amount of “help.” Canada, through the Indian Act discouraged economic development for First Nation people on reserves. Canada made the methods to obtain loans or assistance so onerous that First Nation bands were unable to develop their resources even if they had timber, oil and gas, gravel, or other mines or minerals or resources at their disposal. Canada has now made it a requirement for First Nations to cede their land if they want economic development. The First Nation Land Management Act is willing to turn First Nations into municipalities if they want to exercise a Canadian definition of “self-government”. This Canadian definition is for sovereign leaders of the original nations who ruled for thousands of years to be regulated into mayors of reserve communities or in the parlance of the federal government – collectives. Why does the federal government insist on

redefining First Nation Indigenous’ sovereignty?

Canada is a nation state, a successor state, and a squatting nation sitting on stolen lands without consent. If Canada continues to obstruct and promote harm in First Nation Indigenous communities, the actual owners of Canadian lands, waters and resources will have no choice but to join the Canadian mosaic of lost people or lost tribes. Canada has been conducting this erasure and genocide for over one hundred and fifty years. The Indian Act restricted movement, made residential schools mandatory and disallowed the Indians the right to legal guidance if they found this unfair. It is much like wartime concentration camps except that these concentration camps called Indian reserves still exist. How are they trapped settlements? In the past, First Nations would sit together as clans and seek spiritual guidance to conduct their day to day lives. These lifestyles were inclusive without a one percent or ten percent elite directing the camp. These lifestyles respected the earth and waters so that harvesting

or hunting was monitored so that there would always be continuous life. This is in contrast to distorted European history that teaches that the Indians here were savages killing each other and expending all the plants or wildlife in one area, hence the nomadic nature of the Indian peoples. It is safe to say that the misunderstanding of First Nation Indigenous peoples happened because the European thought processes were laden with greed and guilt so the altruistic nature of the Indians has never been understood. White people came into this kind, giving and spiritual society and thought they knew better. Through the Indian Act, the federal government controlled the governance. The age old ways of mentoring a leader were lost to the First Nation peoples. The Indian Act election – a system of “democracy” was foisted on the Indians in their concentration camps. But inside the reserves, there are big clans or families who can control the vote for leadership. This is not the leader raised by the people who was selfless,

humble and kind. This is families bullying one another, anxious to get the positions that offer better pay and access to limited jobs so only specific families will have jobs or security over other tribal members. This colonization and corruption of the original spiritual systems has led to the election of some of the most inept people in First Nation communities. In turn these inept leaders must rely on consultants or non-natives to “run the reserve” which is like running an urban centre without the budget, infrastructure or capacity. Therefore, there are inept leaders relying on non-native consultants or legal advisors in First Nation communities. What are their priorities? Maintaining power is one priority. So, a chief and council elected through the Indian Act system has to maintain the appearance of being a “traditional governance” system and talking the necessary treaty rhetoric or deferring to women, children and elders, while doing everything to keep their own gravy train rolling. This is a constant struggle for many Indian Affairs

councils. The Ministers and bureaucracy of Indian Affairs know there are situations ripe with corruption - where families, mother, elders and children are calling, texting, emailing and documenting complaints. These cries for help fall on deaf federal ears. These cries for relief also go out to Indigenous media sources, with grassroots people desperately seeking help in their everyday lives. Why do Canadians hear nothing about these stories? Canadians say Indians don’t pay taxes and then get angry when Canada announces a big budget. Canada fails to say most of the money will be used internally by the department of Indigenous Affairs which has primarily non-First Nation Canadian public employees. So, who is running the First Nation Indigenous peoples into the ground? Is it really fair to say “get over it” or free money” when in fact, Canada controls the “governance” systems on First Nation Indian reserves that continue are failing the original people even now in 2021?

The Chief of the Williams Lake First Nation will be releasing a follow-up to his award-winning children’s book this fall. More than six years after launching his first book, Dipnetting with Dad, Willie Sellars teamed up again with illustrator Kevin Easthope to continue Little Brother’s adventures in Hockey with Dad. The second book is loosely based on Sellars own family experiences with his children, as well as his own family upbringing, and continues to promote and celebrate First

Nations values, culture, and traditions. “Very thankful to Reggie Leach and Ted Nolan for providing quotes and supporting the book as well. They’ve been hero’s of mine for what they’ve done for the game and what they’ve done for First Nation people,” wrote Sellars to Facebook. With pre-orders now available for Hockey with Dad, which will be released in the fall of 2021, Sellars already has his eyes on what his third book will entail as a series of children’s books has been long envisioned.

Removal of general manager sparks new beginning for Haudenosaunee Women’s Nationals Field Lacrosse Team STAFF REPORT

“I’m hoping that this really gives our girls the strength and support they need so that this program, this women’s program, can actually flourish and become a serious, competitive program.” — Aryien Stevens, defense player for the Haudenosaunee Women’s Nationals Field Lacrosse Team. A light came at the end of the process of removing a general manager who wrote a letter of support for a convicted child sex offender while working in administration for the Haudenosaunee Women’s Nationals Field Lacrosse Team. The team has since been disbanded and will be reignited as a new team with new management after the controversy was addressed by Six Na-tions and Onondaga Confederacy Council Chiefs and the Iroquois Men’s Nationals. On Saturday, April 17, the Two Row Times connected with Aryien Stevens, the heroine responsible, to gain backstory in her plight to remove Tia Schindler from the teams management for her character reference letter in support of convicted child sex offender Matthew Myke. “I just couldn’t stomach the thought of these little girls coming up and not even having a chance. Or being in this place where they’re supposed to feel comfortable, and there’s all of these people abusing

their power and supporting men or people like that,” she said. “You see people getting fired for less and this is supposed to be a world team.” “I did not want to be on the team where that was the skeleton in our closet.” Out of the 32 reference letters written for Myke, two garnered public apologies. It was reported by Two Row Times on September 12 last year that the Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre issued an apology, after learning that one of their employees sent a false letter of support on behalf of con-victed Myke.

By September 23, another apology was issued by Chairperson of the Grand River ‘Champion of Champions’ Pow Wow Charlene Bomberry, apologizing for issuing a letter of support for convicted child sex offender Matt Myke, without the consent of the rest of the pow wow committee. But, Schindler did not. This deeply concerned Stevens and other members of the Haudeno-saunee Women’s Team. “When I saw Tia’s name on there, I was just… disgusted,” said Stevens, mentioning the statistic that ‘one in three Indigenous women are sexually assaulted.’ “I couldn’t go there, after this, knowing of the letter she wrote and who she supports, and feel safe.” Shortly, Stevens said that she garnered 20 signatures from players for a petition to remove Schindler. But, during a later try out, the staff were not present,

which Stevens said was unusual and prevented more dialogue on the topic. “Demanding the removal of a person in charge, who oversees young women, you cannot stand next to or behind a child rapist, point blank,” said Stevens. “Tia backing a man who caused great harm, not only to the sexual as-sault of the child he was prosecuted for, but plenty of players on this team, and that’s why I spoke up. That’s why I used my voice as a survi-vor, with the strength I’ve been given from those hurt and affected by sexual assault. The time of being silent is no more and I’m very grateful for the Iroquois nationals organization for reaching out, hearing us and helping with the reform on the men’s side too,” she said. “As a community we are responsible for the care of our women and chil-dren. This is about accountability.” Alongside Stevens, Cassandra Minerd decided to quit playing for the team in protest in February of this year, and post the issue on their social media. “We knew that if we didn’t make this issue public, they were going to push it under the rug, like they already had,” she said. “I believe that we should be supporting [the girl that was affected] and removing Tia was the bare minimum. For some reason, they just weren’t willing to do it.” In hours, the women received messages reaching out from the Iroquois Men’s Nationals, and other young women reaching

out and saying that they ‘admired’ them for what they did. Stevens repeated the sentiment that her intentions were not to attack Schindler on a personal level, which she was sure to moderate during the petition process, but to have her removal protect the team and its play-ers. “We didn’t ask for [Schindler] to be removed or banned from lacrosse. All we asked for was her to be removed from the general managers position,” said Stevens. “To me, I just felt that this needed to be said. I know the girl that was at the heart of this, and she went through hell,” she said. “The strength that she had to do this is what gave me the strength to do this.” Looking forward, Stevens said that she is “still in shock” over how much will be changing for the team. She is hopeful that the reformation will bring about better management, and room for growth for the program to ensure that the team moves out of the cycle of other issues that were harboured due to poor management and lack of team dynamic. “I’m just really hoping that with the removal of [Schindler] and the dis-banding of the team, we can have a program where our girls can shine,” she said. In closing, Stevens said that she hopes future generations, which could include her nieces, will be protected and supported while playing the sport they love.

EDUCATION…A PATH TO TOMORROW

April 21st, 2021

ONTARIO - The OHL is the only major junior league under the Canadian Hockey League umbrella not to begin a 2020-21 season. Ontario's Sports Minister Lisa MacLeod said it would be "irresponsible" to approve return to play for the Ontario Hockey League right now. She spoke last Thursday explaining that the province was days away from approving the OHL's plan to return to play in March, but the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic began in Ontario. She explained that although she had been hopeful there would be an OHL season in 2021, there was no way to justify the league returning due to how quickly variants spread. Ontario reported a record-high 4,736 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday

and 29 more deaths linked to the virus. The ministry of health said there are 1,932 people hospitalized in Ontario with the novel coronavirus, with 659 patients in intensive care and 419 on a ventilator. Even so, the Western Hockey League and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League have both played modified schedules this year. The OHL said in a statement on Thursday that a return-to-play was given conditional approval, but "the recent increase in COVID-19 cases across the province, paired with the latest reinstatement of a stay-at-home order, have put increased pressure on these plans.” The league said it would provide a further update in the coming days. The CHL cancelled the Memorial Cup, Canada's major junior championship, on Tuesday, with plans to be held in either Oshawa, Ont., or Sault Ste.

Marie, Ont. On April 7, Premier Doug Ford announced a stay-at-home order to try and slow the spread of the virus. It was explained that any resumption of play would have to be approved by Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health. On March 17, it was revealed that the Ontario Hockey League will receive $2.35 million from the Ontario government as part of $15.3 million in funding to support sport and recreation organizations and high-performance athletes during the COVID-19 pandemic. MacLeod said the OHL funding will be for the league's post-secondary education scholarships for athletes with its 17 Ontario-based clubs. Each OHL franchise will receive approximately $138,000 for help with player scholarship commitments.
