Sep 8, 2021

Per CBC: Recent remarks against vaccine passports by former NHL star Theoren Fleury are "reprehensible" and a "stain on his legacy," according to a Manitoba university that gave him an honorary doctorate.

Over the weekend, Fleury posted a message on Twitter linking vaccine passports to pedophilia, responding to criticism with a screenshot highlighting several of his past awards, including his honorary degree from Brandon University.

In a statement on Tuesday, the university condemned his "espousing of conspiracy theories."
