Minister for Sport Addresses Hockey Stars' Drinking

Minister for Sport Addresses Hockey Stars' Drinking | hockeey | Scoop.it

Minister of Culture and Sport Stefan Wallin has raised the issue of hockey stars' public drunkenness with the president of the Finnish Ice Hockey Association (FIHA).
During a live TV broadcast of Monday evening's gold-medal celebrations in downtown Helsinki, some members of the national men's team and their staff appeared to be heavily inebriated.
Wallin discussed the issue with Kalervo Kummola, President of the FIHA on Tuesday. Wallin declined to reveal details of their conversation, but told YLE he had stressed that sports stars serve as role models for children and youth.
The apparent drunkenness of the team's players and officials during a prime-time national broadcast featuring President Tarja Halonen has aroused considerable discussion in Finland.

Brock Boyer's curator insight, May 23, 2013 5:03 PM

Huge crowds gathered in Helsinki's Market Square on Monday evening to celebrate Sunday's victory in the final of the World Ice Hockey Championships with chants of "Hooray Finland! Hooray Lions". Members of the team met with family and friends before storming through the streets in celebration. One woman was actually injuryed after climbing a pole to watch the celebration.


Hockey is my favorite sport and always will be. The USA took the bronze medal this year in the championships. I watched Finland play and they looked like a very well coach, fundamental team. I would like to be part of a huge celebration someday. I bet when the US hockey team won gold in the 1980 olympics that a huge celebration went down. I think it would be a cool experiance.

Fleet Network Endorses The Hon Joe Hockey MP Announcement

Perth, WA – When former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced his proposed changes to FBT on cars, Fleet Network were very vocal on the ramifications for the motor vehicle and salary packaging industries.

The change would have saved the government approximately $1.8 billion in an effort to fund the removal of the carbon tax. The proposed changes would have been a burden for employees who rely on work vehicles and reduce the flexibility employers can provide.

 

The announcement by Rudd caused significant disruption across the automotive and salary packaging industries. Following the election, business has slowly picked up with the number of enquiries back to around half of what they were prior to the announcement.

 

We were very pleased with the formal announcement in early November from The Hon Joe Hockey confirming that the Coalition Government will not be proceeding with these changes. We are confident that given this announcement, the industry can begin to recover and get back to the levels of business it was before.

 

Mr Michael Hadfield, General Manager of Fleet Network said, “Whilst some sections of the media and Mr Rudd tried to portray salary sacrificing as a benefit for highly paid executives, the reality is that it is middle income Australians.”

 

He continues by adding that “A lot of them are government employees who use the ability to sacrifice part of the salary to help them purchase and maintain a vehicle, which they could not afford to do so with after tax dollars. This supports the struggling car industry and helps average Australians get into a good and reliable vehicle of their own choice.”

The salary packaging industry was decimated by the announcement by Rudd and limped to the Federal Election unsure of what was in store for them. Following the election the industry has slowly picked up but the public is still unsure of where they stand in regard to sacrificing part of their salary to purchase a motor vehicle.

 

The announcement by Mr Hockey puts beyond doubt that salary packaging is back on the agenda for average Australians to help them use pre-tax dollars to purchase and run a motor vehicle.

 

This makes obtaining a novated car lease easy for employees who qualify. The announcement by The Hon Joe Hockey is good news for both employees and employers.
