In Canada hockey trumps politics

As you know we are in the middle of an election in Canada.

Last night there was a televised political debate between the candidates, in English. A televised political debate in French was due to take place tomorrow, Thursday, at the same time that the Montreal Canadiens faced the Boston Bruins. Certain to lose this battle the political parties agreed to move the date of the French language political debate to this evening to avoid a conflict with the Canadiens’ playoff game.

Only in Canada, eh?
