A few weeks back, the Kodiaks had the pleasure and honor to listen to presentations from the Camrose City Police (Cst. Matt Rolfe) and AJHL official, Sanjeev Bhagrath. I wanted to thank both these individuals for taking their time to speak to the players and give them guidance and knowledge for their future. Sanjeev spoke from the heart about racism and bullying and that we have a platform as athletes(organizations) to put a stop to this (and he is correct). He has been an official for many years and has done a great job on the ice and now he is taking his voice off the ice. He said something to the players that hit close to the heart: "I am Canadian, my blood is the same color as yours, I like the same foods you like.... I have a passion for the game of hockey but the color of my skin is different. The color of my skin should not make me any different than anyone else in the game of hockey or be seen differently." Sanjeev, you are Canadian and we are Canadian and we are proud of this! We skate with you on and off the ice. As an organization we are proud to be associated with you and your professionalism and thank you for presenting to our players and our organization. Courage, Character, Commitment, we skate together as one.
