News that actually will impact lacrosse in Ontario:
Ontario has passed concussion safety legislation designed to protect amateur athletes and educate coaches about the dangers of head injuries, calling the law the first of its kind in the country.
The bill — named Rowan's Law in memory of 17-year-old Rowan Stringer who died from rugby injuries — passed with rare all-party support Tuesday.

It now takes the onus away from individual sports, leagues and teams to develop these protocols. As we looked at updating ours, we looked at various other sports and saw there was a big discrepancy between how they were handled.
This is great news for all sports in Ontario.
