They have an entire segment on Brady Leavold. A guy that never played in the NHL and spent time on drugs, in jail, and homeless.

But they do not have Grant Fuhr on hand, the biggest NHL player to ever emerge from Victoria. AND he did lots of cocaine too!

This whole telecast is 1000% too woke.

And a feature on Brian Burke as the executive director of the women’s players union. What a slimy piece of **** he is.

You expected something else? In a telecast centred on Canada's wokest city?

Luckily I’m not much of a Victoria hockey fan or I’d be upset.

Hockey Day in Canada did a tremendously shitty job of spotlighting Canadian pro hockey today.

Victoria basks in the national spotlight on Hockey Day in Canada

 

Thousands of people converged on Ship Point on Saturday for the celebration as the full Hockey Night in Canada crew broadcast from above, atop Milestones Restaurant, beaming images of the Inner Harbour, B.C. legislature and Empress to viewers across the country.
 
 
 
Among the blizzard of Island sports stories broadcast across the country Saturday, Robin Bawa of Duncan related to MacLean what it was like to become the first South Asian to play in the NHL.
 
 
 
 
(the guy played less than 60 NHL games)

Following a feature on Barry Pederson, Grant Fuhr and the 1981 WHL champion Victoria Cougars, Hockey Day host Ron MacLean told the national audience: “[These Royals] are kind of symbolic of the Cougars team of 1981.”
