Is this going too far?
Parents in Winnipeg had two tickets to see the Heritage classic between our Oilers and the Jets. The game looks like it will be a GREAT time, because watching outdoor hockey is what it’s all about! But they found out the hard way that everyone attending an NHL game needs to have their OWN ticket, even a baby.
They are arguing that it is unfair to charge babies to go into an arena. In amazing fashion, the NHL reached out to them and offered two more tickets to the game! wow! However the parents declined those tickets saying that they need to change their policy which the NHL will refuse to do. NOW the parents are thinking of filing a human rights complaint over the matter.
Is going to the Heritage classic a human right? Absolutely not.
I don’t have kids, but what I do know is that bringing a child to a hockey game isn’t the norm any more. Which is too bad. Should the NHL look at reversing this policy? Maybe. But calling this a human right is a stretch. I’m slightly on both sides because is the baby occupying a seat? No. Is the baby occupying space? Yes.
