In­ves­ti­ga­tion into mi­nor hockey money on­go­ing

COR­NER BROOK — Fol­low­ing the ad­vice it gave to the Cor­ner Brook Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion, the Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary is not say­ing any­thing about its in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the organizati­on’s fi­nances. This spring, the as­so­ci­a­tion con­ducted an in­ter­nal au­dit into fi­nan­cial ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties that came to light this past sea­son and which the as­so­ci­a­tion publicly alerted the mi­nor hockey com­mu­nity to in March. The find­ings of the in­ter­nal au­dit, con­ducted by a three-per­son team ap­pointed by the as­so­ci­a­tion, were turned over to the RNC for in­ves­ti­ga­tion in May. The mi­nor hockey ex­ec­u­tive will not discuss the au­dit re­sults, cit­ing that the RNC di­rected them not to com­ment about it publicly while the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion un­folds.

The RNC would not pro­vide any up­date on its in­ves­ti­ga­tion when con­tacted last week, say­ing only it was still on­go­ing. The na­ture of the ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties or the amount of money in ques­tion has never been con­firmed, though the City of Cor­ner Brook has said it will help the as­so­ci­a­tion come up with a plan to pay off its sig­nif­i­cant ice time bill with the city’s civic cen­tre.
