james Moore, a junior minister in Canada’s federal cabinet, has a real talent for stirring up the politically paranoid. Granted these days it doesn’t take much, but the bar’s officially been set about 5 miles lower as of this week. When asked escentially which team he’d be rooting for in this year’s playoffs, he had the unmitigated gall to pick Vancouver over Montreal. This despite, you know, the fact he lives in BC when he’s not in Ottawa being criticised for his choice of hockey team. Hey, I’m cheering for Vancouver over Montreal too. Is the conservative party still looking for members?
Dear overeasily offended politicos. In the words of one James Moore on Twitter, lighten up. It’s only hockey, not Canada’s economy. No love, a Leafs fan.
