Suspension of hockey executive lifted

The suspension of the Cowichan Valley Minor Hockey Association executive has been lifted.

Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association officials presented their list of conditions that needed to be met for the suspension to be revoked during a meeting with the CVMHA board Thursday night at the Island Savings Centre.

"We left the room and let the 12 of them decide whether they wanted to accept or decline it,'' said VIAHA president Jim Humphrey.

The meeting went for about 2 1/2 hours.

When the CVMHA agreed with the conditions, "the suspension was lifted at 9:30 Thursday night,'' said Humphrey.

The executive members of the CVHMA who doubled as coaches can now return to their teams and go behind the bench.

It's not known whether the CVMHA will have another meeting to elect a president. The Jan. 13 meeting, where VIAHA found procedural violations, ended with the election of Jim Larson as president but that was overturned due to a variety of factors.

Mike McCluskey is the current vice-president and would assume control until he either runs for president or another is elected. The CVMHA may elect to complete the season without a president.

McCluskey could not be reached for comment.

The suspension of the CVMHA executive lasted for two weeks.
