Listen to an interview with Meg Hewings, General Manager of the Montréal Stars, winners of the 2011 Clarkson Cup celebrating the best team in the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL).

In this interview Hewings speaks about key differences between the style of international hockey played in the CWHL in contrast to the increasing violence seen in the National Hockey League (NHL). Beyond the ice rink this interview explores the interconnections between the increasing violence tolerated in the corporate hockey world and the street riots that rocked Vancouver to end the 2011 hockey season.
