Hazing News

DKE hazing at University of Alberta one of several disturbing 2010 incidents in Canada

Here is a link to the story where members made pledges eat vomit and do other questionable or nasty tasks.

With an athletic death at St. Thomas and numerous high school examples of violent hazing, I am starting to wonder if Canada will try to get educators and coaches involved with NCAA, NFHS, and efforts to educate high school and college students, as well as administrators.

It is too soon to draw any conclusions, but this blog certainly will keep a closer eye on hazing incidents in the great nation of Canada to see if any pattern emerges and to see if any serious antihazing progress is made.
