We Always Knew He Didn't Like Senators

Maybe it'd be different if I lived in Ontario, but this has me a lot more upset than this.

I can put up with the social conservatism, hawkish foreign affairs stands, cancellation of social programs, voodoo economics, and lax gun control. But if there's one thing I simply won't tolerate in a Prime Minister it's cheering for the Maple Leafs.

  • Amen. How dare he support the Make me laughs?

  • I wonder how much GIS and Airmiles database numbers the national tory office crunched before concluding that the Maple Leafs were the team to cheer for?

    Bye bye Quebec seats...

  • One suspects this may be vote pandering... After all, Harper appointed Fourtier to get the Montreal vote and stole the Vancouver creep to get the Vancouver vote. Maybe this is the symbolic gesture for Toronto.

  • Hey, I may be from Toronto, but I cheer for the Sens... or any Canadian team that isn't the Loser Leafs.

  • I may not be a Leafs fan but the PM did grow up in Etobicoke, it would only stand to reason that he would be a Leafs fan. And don't most kids - especially when they are 10 - support their Dad's team?

  • His team isn't a secret; he's admitted it's the Leafs in past interviews.

  • Harper missed the Kyoto vote to FLY to Toronto on a government jet to watch a hockey game.

    If Jason Kenney was still in opposition, he would cut down a tree and issue a press release with it.

  • He would be better off supporting Sens or Flames. He is jinxed. He shows up in a Leafs hockey game and the Leafs lose. And he won't win any votes in Toronto for cheering for the Leafs.

  • Harper, like all good Canadians who want to be impartial avoid siding with a Canadian team, should support the Detroit Red Wings.

  • ..AND avoid..

  • This may finally make my fellow Torontonians realize that the Leafs are unworthy of our support.

  • For those hockey fans not from Toronto, you should know that been a Leaf die-hard is more of a desease than a choice. Harper's affiliation is nothing more than a clear illustration of this.

    But I feel it's worth mentioning that most of you folks from other NHL cities ought to realize this. When the Leafs come to town its as if your fans stay home and make room for Leaf fans. They might as well be playing home games in every Canadian city - particularly Ottawa. Did you hear Alfredson getting booed last night every time he touched the puck...in Ottawa???

    And sorry CG, but Calgary is no exception. It's a great Leaf town too. Ooooh!

  • Yup. Thirty Eight years without a Stanley Cup.

    That trend should safely continue with our PM as the Leafs mascot and Good Luck charm.

    Hopefully he has seasons tickets.

  • Oilers 3
    Flames 1

  • While this approach is not a complete solution, and certainly more needs to be done, it beats the hell out of the mess that the previous government left us with, or words to that effect.

  • they belong together.

    By Blogger robert mcbean, at 3:20 PM  

  • Clearly nobody here actually watched that game - or that goal. It isn't that Mr. Harper is cheering for or jeering for the Laffs, but rather he's incredulous that the puck crossed the line after Gerber appeared to stop it.

    And that, on a Penalty Shot which was improperly awarded to Sundin (as there was no foul until after he had already taken his shot).

    By Blogger Paul, at 3:25 PM  

  • 39, to be exact.

    Now I'm not a Leaf fan, contrary to what the name may say, but man, did they deliver a loud STFU to fans and media here last night.

  • CP is reporting Bob Rae's campaign has been busted for forging at least 37 Form 6's. Those people have lost their delegate post. The Bob Rae campaign responds by saying the rules are very burdensome that it's tough on organizers. If Bob Rae thinks people signing their own Form 6 is too burdensome, how many signed their own memberships forms? What kind of leader would this guy make with so many sketchy organizers????

    What's worse is no one in the party seems to care. You think the Liberals would ahve learned after the sponsoship scandal mess than they HAVE to be squeaky clean, even if that is a "burden"

  • GO LEAFS GO!

    By Blogger hybrid, at 8:14 PM  

  • Finally, a redeeming quality! Truth be told, every non-Leafs fan is just jealous of our passion and loyalty.

    GO LEAFS GO!

    (See Gerber. See Gerber get laughed at in his own house. See Gerber go bye-bye.)

  • weedram, the leafs are indeed "the passion that unites us all". And the leafs have the best fans in the world.

    By Blogger Joanne, at 10:53 PM  

  • concerned yl,

    having this thing called a Form 6 sounds like Kafka. maybe burdensome is overstating it, but bizarre certainly isn't.

    By Blogger Chuckercanuck, at 11:07 PM  

  • hybrid; Well, they are better than the Riders, if nothing else. ;-)

    By Blogger calgarygrit, at 11:38 PM  

  • But are the Leafs a "nation"? And can we convince them to separate from Canada?

    By Blogger Paul, at 12:11 AM  

  • HEY, no ones perfect!!!

    Horny Toad

  • Go Leafs Go. :)
