December 6, 2022  (12:59)

Incase you've missed it, Carey Price took to social media the other day to announce that he is opposed to the new Bill C-21, which was proposed by the Liberal Party in Canada is looking to ban certain types of rifles and shotguns.

The Montreal Canadiens made a public statement yesterday regarding Carey Price's post:
On the eve of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, we reflect on the lives that were shattered 33 years ago in one of the worst mass shootings in Canadian history. Our thoughts are with the 14 women who lost their lives on December 6, 1989, at École Polytechnique, as well as with their families, friends, and the survivors of that tragedy.

In honor of their memory, the Montreal Canadiens organization has made a donation to the "Week of the White Rose" campaign to send 14 underprivileged girls to Polytechnique Montréal's summer science camp, Folie Technique, to help support the growth and development of women in STEM. We encourage all of those who wish to join us by visiting roseblanche.org/en to learn more about and contribute to this amazing initiative.

On Saturday, Carey Price posted a statement in support of the CCFR's opposition to proposed federal gun control legislation. As previously stated, Carey was unaware of the CCFR's recent marketing campaign nor was he aware of the unfortunate timing of his statement. The Montreal Canadiens wish to express their sincere apology to any and all who have been offended or upset by the discourse that has arisen over this matter in recent days.

Price then today posted on his Instagram story that he has been with the Montreal Canadiens for a long time and knew all about the timing of his post and the tragedy.
My heart and prayers are with the families and the victims of the 1989 École Polytechnique shooting today.

I think the people of Montreal know my heart and my character and know I would never intentionally cause pain to those impacted by gun violence.

Despite a previous statement released, I did in fact know about the tragedy. I have been a member of the MTL community for years andI understand the weight this day holds within the community.

While have no control over the timing of the amendment to Bill C-21 I
stand by the opinions I've shared, I acknowledge that amplifying any conversation around guns this week may have upset some of those impacted most by the events here in 1989 and to them I apologize.

The Montreal Canadiens did the right thing making a public statement regarding Price's post, but Price also has done the right thing making sure everyone knew the truth regarding his post.
