The legal claim brought by Arland Bruce against the Canadian Football League (CFL), the Krembil Neuroscience Centre, and The CFL Alumni Association is about bringing to the surface the risks of multiple concussions.
You can replace a hip joint or a knee joint, but nothing can be done to help someone with repetitive trauma to their brain. Parents and coaches need to know when it is time for a player to stop participating in contact sports.
The goal of this lawsuit is to:
- inform parents, coaches and players about repetitive brain trauma
- get help for players that are living with the long-term effects of concussion
