TORONTO — Stephen Harper a hockey fan, you say? And then some, it turns out.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the prime minister holds court in detail on both the history of the game and its role in shaping Canadian society……….
Harper says the tough, aggressive, fast-paced aspects of hockey are as much a part of the Canadian character as being "peace-loving and fair-minded and pleasant."
Harper also concedes that the chance to live out his boyhood fantasy of playing in the National Hockey League would outweigh the powerful pleasures of life as PM…………..
Quick someone give him a place on the team in exchange for him leaving the Peace-loving and Fair-minded Canadians alone and quitting as PM. Please, please, please!
A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.
