#2 is a good question. Maybe they should? But you probably won't get ALL hockey jurisdications to agree so really its liekely unworkable.

just like in where I work, there is no way to completely eliminate all risk, but you can reduce it significantly. There's a certain point where you have to draw the line and say this risk is acceptable and this risk isn't. Hockey Alberta with consultation with medical experts has drawn that line @ PeeWee.

#1 because they're looking out for the greater good of all kids. Sometimes adults can't be trusted....that's why car seats for infants are not optional.
