Manitoba RCMP investigating report of hazing involving a rural hockey team


Manitoba RCMP are investigating after receiving a report of hazing involving a rural hockey team earlier this year.

Police say Pembina Valley RCMP received a report stemming for an alleged hazing incident that occurred in Winnipeg in January.

RCMP would not confirm or deny that the hazing reported took place, but only that they are investigating.

Winnipeg police say the investigation was initiated by RCMP and they have assisted with some local issues.

A francophone school division that oversees 24 schools in the province confirmed in a statement some of their students were involved in the matter and it has launched its own internal investigation.

The Division Scolaire Franco-Manitobaine says it does not tolerate hazing or any other abuse, and is working to provide support to the students and families involved.

   This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 13, 2024.
