Canada’s national sport celebrated in Montreal and it’s not hockey

Tuesday in Montreal, The Canadian Lacrosse Foundation unveiled a weekend of events to mark what they call the 150th anniversary of the sport.

The events will include many contributions from Iroquois Nations, who have been playing what they call “the creator’s game” for much longer than 150 years.

    Why then is the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame filled with non natives, when it’s our game?
    Our legends languish on the outside, while they continue honouring their own!
    What’s wrong with this picture?

    Canada National Summer Sport – Lacrosse is not even in the Canada Summer Games. How can Lacrosse ever make it to the Olympic Games when the Canada Games organizers don’t believe enough in the game of Lacrosse in their events. I asked some of the people who have the opportunity to select which games make it the Canada Games….Why no Lacrosse. I was told the sport doesn’t check enough boxes.

    It’s the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Lacrosse Association, not of lacrosse itself
