So it would appear that Canada's Culture of rape is not restricted to universities.
Ontario Provincial Police have said little about the investigation, only that it began Monday after they received a tip and further information will be provided after a thorough investigation.
The Ontario Junior Hockey League said it is aware of an investigation involving players from one of its teams, the Cobourg Cougars.
“We have been in contact with the team and will fully co-operate with the authorities in their investigation,” the league wrote on its website.
The league said it is taking the allegations “very seriously” and will not comment further.
The Cobourg Cougars organization could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
OPP spokeswoman Sgt. Kelly Daniels said the investigation is ongoing and no charges have been laid.
“This is a major incident that is being handled by our criminal investigation branch led by Det. Insp. James Smyth,” said Daniels.
Daniels said police are monitoring social media for comments made during and after the party, but wouldn’t specify details.
Through its Twitter account, the team said the hashtag #consentisoverrated making the rounds on social media was never used by its players or staff and they find it “profoundly wrong and unacceptable.”
