City of Morden MEDIA RELEASE

RE: Inappropriate MJHL Commentary

January 14, 2019 – Recently the city of Morden was made aware of a video posted to the internet showing inappropriate and derogatory comments made by MJHL colour commentators that included reference to the city of Morden, Mennonite and Hutterite women. This commentary was made by personnel from The Pas, and happened on December 21, 2018.

The following is a statement by Morden Mayor Brandon Burley regarding the video.

“The City of Morden strongly condemns the statements made by the individuals shown in the video. It does not reflect our values nor does it reflect Manitoban or Canadian values. We hope the Manitoba Junior Hockey League will take strong and decisive action that demonstrates these comments do not reflect its’ values either.

We are a proud and diverse community with deep roots in Mennonite and Hutterite culture and want people, women in particular, to know the kind of sentiments expressed in this video have no place in our community or anywhere for that matter. Morden will always stand up for you and advocate for you.

Morden is also a proud hockey town where our young men and women strive to compete at the highest levels. We want the MJHL and others to know that anyone expressing these views is not welcome to offer commentary on hockey or any sport in our city.”
