leaders push for election debate date switch, because of Habs


Recommended Posts

movement is afoot to change the date of a federal election debate to avoid overlapping with a first-round Montreal Canadiens playoff game.

The French-language debate is scheduled for Thursday, the same day the Habs will face off in their first playoff game against the Boston Bruins. Interest in that post-season series is particularly high, given the recent history of bad blood between the teams.

Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe got the ball rolling Sunday by saying there's little doubt hockey-mad Montreal fans will choose the game over the debate.

NDP Leader Jack Layton later echoed those sentiments, the Liberals followed suit, and the Conservatives said they could live with whatever the debate broadcasters decide.


This is too funny
