I heard the news and I realized that not just an era was gone, a piece of me was gone also. If you really think about it, I bet that you would come up with the same thoughts and feelings as I did and still do? Canada is known for a few things and one of them is the legendary Saturday night– “Hockey Night in Canada”

CBC shown “Hockey Night in Canada” for six decades. The station was the home of the country’s game. Now Roger’s bought it for a few billion dollars. I don’t know about you but to me, it doesn’t feel right. I feel let-down as a Saturday night groupie. It is a bit surreal and overwhelming to me. Sixty years of Saturday night hockey helped make Canadians proud and helped to make the whole country feel like one. There is nothing out there right now, that does that!

I feel like standing at CBC’s front door and screaming ‘we want hockey night in Canada back’ I realize that will do nothing. One last question I have is: will Don Cherry keep ‘Coach’s Corner?’ Only time will tell.

What does your President do for fun? Canada’s Prime Minister, Shephen Harper when not in parliament having fun, writes. When he is not fighting the opposition a while back, he was busy writing a hockey book. The book “A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs and the Rise of Professional Hockey” The good thing about it is that all monies will be going to a military charity. Still, Harper should just do his job!



Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, her team is always the Toronto Maple Leafs. Instead of falling for movie stars, Rochelle fell for hockey players. As she grew up, her passion grew to include wanting to be the first female NHL player, the first female 'water' girl for her team and catching a true NHL puck. She did try for the puck, only to learn that A) the puck could have killed her, if she tried to get it or B) you needed to buy one. Years later Rochelle still loves the game! Now a days instead of wanting to join the players, (don't let her fool you, she still wants to join the team) she writes about them. Her one wish in the world is to be alive when the Toronto Maple Leafs win their next Stanley Cup! Rochelle has a certificate in Marketing/Communications at the British Columbia School of Technology and a writing certificate from Simon Fraser University. She has started her own writing company, "From Rochelle's Pen".
