Calgary Premiere of the documentary “Swift Current”


Tonight attended the Calgary Premiere screening of the documentary “Swift Current”, a powerful conversation of child sexual abuse in organized hockey in Canada. Sheldon Kennedy went on to star in the NHL for three teams but carried the terrible memories and trauma of sexual abuse by Graham James, a Junior hockey coach while playing for the Swift Current Broncos as a teenager. http://www.swiftcurrentdoc.com/
