Do Habs games need more French music?
Fri, May 30, 2008

A prominent Quebec publisher is calling on governments to force the Montreal Canadiens to spin more French-language tunes for the Bell Centre crowd.

Michel Brule said he was shocked the team's DJ played only one French song during Game 7 of the Habs' first-round playoff series against the Boston Bruins.

"We are not in Raleigh, (North) Carolina, we are not in Philadelphia, we are in Montreal and we are in Quebec," said Brule, publisher of Les Editions des Intouchables.

"Anglophones think the only language on the planet is English. Anglophones are the most ethnocentric people in the history of humanity."

When did you ever hear a French song in the top 40? I think this guy should get with reality.

It's sad to see, but people like Michel Brule are of the fabric that promotes divisionism in the province, the very same thing he allegedly is speaking out against. I actually miss the old organ at the forum more.

Does this publisher not have anything more important to write about than the lack of French music at hockey games? People go to hockey games to be entertained in Montreal and to forget the language battle that rages in Quebec. It is where they go to cheer the Habs regardless of language.
