from Scott Colby of the Toronto Star,
“You are their idol. They look up to you. They don’t do a good job listening to you, but they do a fantastic job imitating you.” — Karl Subban on being a role model to your children
You may not know who Karl Subban is, but he was one of my heroes when I was a teenager growing up in Thunder Bay.
Today, Subban is a just-retired 55-year-old Toronto school principal and NHL hockey dad. His son P.K., a star with the Montreal Canadiens, was named the NHL’s top defenceman. His sons Malcolm, a goalie, and Jordan, a defenceman, have been drafted by the Bruins and Canucks, respectively.
The father of five has been written about before, not just because his children became hockey stars, but because of his inspirational work as an educator and role model for children in Jane-Finch, one of Toronto’s toughest neighbourhoods.
