Discussion about sports-related concussions on Power and Politics

On May 3, I was interviewed by the CBC, along with my colleague Darren Fisher, about our work on the subcommittee on sports-related concussions and the NHL Commissioner’s stance about the link between concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

There is overwhelming scientific evidence linking head injuries and CTE. If player safety is a priority, then this evidence needs to be accepted by the NHL.
