Should politicians stay out of hockey?
Sat, May 5, 2007

This political power play involving Canadian hockey captain Shane Doan is downright sickening. The words embarrassing, ridiculous, moronic and laughable also come to mind.

Canadian members of parliament have proven they have absolutely nothing better to do than conjure up a two-year old incident that was never verified and turn it into a national scandal. Your tax dollars at work, people.

Doan mess disgusting

Do they have nothing better to do?? Maybe we have to many politicans wasting our money, if they have nothing better to do then discuss a dead issue, perhaps they need to have some layoffs. Maybe next week they would like to talk to Diamler Chrysler to find out why they are putting a Hemi in every vehicle they make.

MORONS!

To think that we elected these idiots and that they are eating from the public trough disgusts me. If any one of them gets one vote out of all of this it would surprise me. Go Canada go. Keep it up Shane, you are doing a great job.

I think our politicians should be ashamed. Shane Doan is a remarkable athelete and representing our country well. With all the problems in our country , I cant believe they would waste their time and our tax money on something that was already cleared by the NHL. Shane Doan is somebody they should look up to. We will be in trouble if we let the politicians decide who should be team captains and who should represent our country.

Do our politicians not have anything more important to spend time discussing ????

This is absolute absurdity, and Shane is simply a target due to his Christian beliefs. Way to go guys, pick on the guy who doesn't even use profanity. I do not think you will meet a nicer guy in the NHL and he should be the player that we as parents, want our kids to look up to. His skill on the ice is also what makes him a target. It is very clear that the only reason that this is even making the news is because Mr. Codett need some press time. Like it has been said time and time again...why don't we just waste more tax dollars and pick on the kid fro Halkirk, AB. Lets remember all that Shane Doan the man does for the good of Canada, not only on the ice, but off the ice. I would not have wanted hockey Canada to have even considered choosing anyone but Shane to be captain for our NATIONAL TEAM. We as a family of beleivers stand by Shans and the entire Doan family through this silly political circus...keep on scoring goals CAPTAIN CANADA(...sorry Ryan Smyth we need to borrow your title for a little while!)

When do I get to vote for QUEBEC TO SEPERATE? This is a fine waste of our taxpayers money. Will the Senate have to have special mettings where nobody shows up to debate this no issue?
Doug MacEachern, 2007-05-05 07:43:28

Politicians wasting money again; what's new?

I am a Quebecer and proud to be but I am also CANADIAN!

Considering all the problems we have in our country you'd think that these "so-called MP's" would have more brains.

When I was a kid,we had 7 classes in our school ......6 French and One English.

Everything that went bad or whatever "bad" happened,it was always (c'est les anglais..les maudits anglais). We couldn't defend ourslves much because the French superiors and teachers protected their (gang).

I say that Mr. Duceppe and his gang just shut the heck up and do the job that WE are paying them to do.And,Mr Duceppe,if you are not happy among the English...well,move to France. You cannot buy intelligence and I see that that is lacking enormously in our government MP's and fontionnaires. Just visit most Hospitals...."everything is in FRENCH!!" That is RACISM!!!!!

It doesn't matter...who, what or where anything was supposedly said....Politicians have no right sticking their noses in the Hockey world...words are shouted in the heat of the game by players, coaches, referees & fans...thats the game!

GO TEAM CANADA....GO SHANE DOAN....and you Politicians...try and concentrate on the REAL world issues......
Marlyn, 2007-05-04 17:25:47

Duceppe and the fools in the bloc have no business in Hockey Canada or any other federal programs for that matter.The BLOC represent all that is bad with poitics in Canada. These dimwits are so sensitive the rest of the country thinks of them as a sad joke. Shane Doan way to go true Canadians appland you and your morals...as well as that hat trick!!!!.KEEP IT UP BOYS.
