Winnipeg Free Press:  Winnipeg fans flying to buy TSN JetsI have friends who were never die hard hockey fans who haven’t missed a game.  There is no question now that the free period is over, that tens of thousands of Manitobans are stepping up and ordering this channel.

Globe and Mail:  When sports fans alter national anthemsI couldn’t disagree more with the associate professor of music.  I don’t think there is anything disrespectful in the alteration of the song.  The emphasis on ‘True North’ simply pays homage to the organization that brought NHL hockey back to the province, without altering any words of ‘O Canada’I will have more on this topic, including the manner in which this tribute began.
