Official Statement Regarding Max Comtois

January 3rd, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Official Statement on Social Media Comments by Max Comtois’ Representatives

St. Louis, MO (January 3, 2019) – Maxime Comtois is the ultimate example of a Hockey Canada athlete who has grown through the ranks to become a selfless leader. No one is prouder to wear the Maple Leaf on his chest and C on his jersey.

These young men understand and accept the pressure that comes with their roles in the hockey world.

It is shameful and incomprehensible that a few cowards who can hide behind social media could make such vicious attacks on these young men’s character after they have battled their hearts out for their country.

We will make this one and only statement on this subject, so not to validate anymore the cowardly comments made on social media. It was Maxime’s idea to use this as a learning moment for all of the youth of Canada, that cyber bullying is a real problem, and like all bullies, we all need to stand up to them and call them out for what they are. Thank you for shedding a spotlight on a major problem in our society.

Best of luck to all of the participants still battling in the WJC, still the best tournament in the world.

Maxime Comtois est l’exemple ultime d’un athlète de Hockey Canada qui a gravi les échelons pour devenir un leader complet. Personne n’est plus fier de porter la feuille d’érable sur sa poitrine et le C sur son chandail.

Ces jeunes hommes comprennent et acceptent la pression liée à leurs rôles dans le monde du hockey.

Il est honteux et incompréhensible que quelques lâches qui peuvent se cacher derrière les médias sociaux puissent lancer des attaques aussi vicieuses sur le caractère de ces jeunes hommes après s’être battus fiertement pour leur pays.

Nous ferons cette déclaration unique sur ce sujet, afin de ne plus valider les commentaires honteux faits sur les médias sociaux. Maxime veut que nous profitons de cela comme un moment d’apprentissage pour tous les jeunes Canadiens. La cyberintimidation est un problème réel et, comme tous les tyrans, nous devons tous leur faire face et les appeler pour ce qu’ils sont.  Merci pour avoir illuminé un réel problème dans notre société.

Je souhaite la meilleure des chances à tous les participants qui combattent encore au CMJ, qui reste le meilleur tournoi du monde.
