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

Guilty or not, this is a total non-issue. Health-care, education and the environment are what our elected officials should be worried about. It makes me sick that our so-called leaders are trying to gain political mileage out of this. And the media is equally guilty for turning this alledged incident into a major story. This kind of rubbish journalism is polarizing and does nothing to strengthen our country's fragile sense of identity.

Truly there are bigger fish to fry politically.

Are Doucette and Layton really worried about Canadian Unity?? Or protection of Language.??NOT!! The rest of the world must be really getting a laugh about this.This is nothing but an attention grabber. I feel silly even reading about this Garbage. Time to quit the Political Correctness and start kicking some MPs' Butts. If this was brought up by My MP I would be in their office the next morning and they would be doing the listening NOT the talking..... I hope when this is all put to bed...that Mr. Doan sue these Leaders for what they are. Quebecers, and Ontario, stand up for all that is right and get both of these idiots out of the public eye.

That politicians would willfully slander a young man over comments that he never made, and that pale in comparison to some of those I hear uttered in the house (slab 'o bacon comes to mind) is utterly reprehensible to me. Time to send someone to bed without their supper.

not only is this debacle interesting, it's an embassament for all Canadians, but then again the Bloc does not consider themselves Canadians, so then why are they given the opportunity to spew such drivel in OUR House of Commons, reason they are like little kids needing attention and getting none and they (Bloc) wonder why they have such little respect, it's earned like (Doan) and not for sale.

There is a place for Mr. Duceppe, Mr.Dion and Mr. Layton.

It's called St. Pierre-Miquelon and it's part of France not Canada.

I am 1/2 french and these jerks sicken me with their vote grabbing greediness.

If you were born in Canada then cut the crap and be a proud Canadian and cut out the stupid whining.

Shane Doan is no threat to any French-Canadian and never has been.

Gilles Duceppe and Stephane Dion are far bigger threats to making anyone in this country dislike anything french or to making anyone deny their french heritage.

I think this should be a rallying call to replace the entire House with new representatives. Come the next election if the person on the ballot is the incumbent then don't cast your vote for them! Pick another candidate, period. How about we all vote for independents and remove petty party politics from the mix altogether!

Somehow we Canadians need to find a way to make our governments realize they are not there for their own selfish interests but are there to represent us.

Go Team Canada. Go Doan.

Bertuzzi assualts someone and Heatley KILLS someone yet they made Team Canada.

Maybe if those victims had been french they would be doing the time they deserve.

I think that it is a disgrace to our country that a man who was proven innocent is being slandered like this. The NHL investigated the incident and found that he was innocent. Now to use an innocent man for political leverage is ridiculous, don't our ELECTED officials have anything better to do with our time or money? They aren't protecting Canada's reputation they are hurting it. If all the opposition parties would think about the country and not play petty politics this would never have been an issue. But in an attempt to gain your votes they have to resort to this behaviour makes me sick.

Anyone who has played competitive sports has heard alot of swearing. I can sort of agree that was goes on the ice stays there, but where I am having a problem with is this. What if he had told Anson Carter that he is a "F...g n....?" Or what if there is a Jewish person in the NHL and he had told him "F...g Jew!" I think the league would have suspended him. Just food for thought folks!
