Stupid decision = Your opinion (which you share with some others). While many of us believe leaving checking in PeeWee is the dumber of the two options.
You're welcome to voice that opinion, and while I don't think its the perfect solution, I do believe it is the best of the two options. That they didn't investigate or bring in additional measures is disappointing, but maybe BC and NS will be a little more ambitious with how to teach kids and Alberta can learn from them.
How the decision was made? Medical studies, people who've been associated with the sport for years, public consultation (although its bizarre there are 2 surveys?) ..... seems liek they did their due diligence.
