He Shoots-They Write a Ticket!

As reported in the Globe and Mail today The good old street hockey game is again under attack – and it’s fighting back.

David Sasson was playing ball hockey with a dozen kids on Choquette Street in the Montreal suburb of Dollard-des-Ormeaux when the police blew the whistle.

A neighbour had filed a complaint under long-standing municipal bylaws, similar to those in most Canadian cities, which make it illegal to play any game on a street.

“I couldn’t believe it, I had no idea hockey on the street was illegal,” said Mr. Sasson, who is the father of two boys, aged 7 and 10, who were players.
