And now on to serious Canadian issues:

From the National Post:
Nova Scotia MLAs sent a message yesterday to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman: Saturday's game between Sidney Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins and the Ottawa Senators should be on Hockey Night in Canada. The House of Assembly unanimously passed a resolution protesting the league's decision to schedule the opening-round playoff game at 4 p.m. Atlantic time, instead of Saturday evening. The change came at the request of NBC Sports, and is expected to reduce viewers in Canada, where Saturday-evening games get the highest ratings. "Nova Scotians, and all Canadians, want to see Sidney Crosby and the Penguins Saturday night on national television," said the resolution read by Tory MLA Pat Dunn. Mr. Dunn said Mr. Bettman should care what politicians in Mr. Crosby's home province think of the schedule. He hopes future games will be shown in the evening.
