Description

The Canadian hockey association had dropped a 20 year ban on body checking in hockey. This would have affected quite a few children. Since this had to do with serious injuries CBC's Mark Kelley investigated this issue. The ban was lifted after university studies Cconcluded that leagues that did not ban body checking also had a high spate of injuries. Mark Kelley's investigations proved that these studies were indeed wrong and challenged the lifting of the ban.
