This Is Not An Entry About Shane Doan


I'm not going to write about the whole Shane Doan controversy that has erupted in our esteemed House of Commons.  A parliamentary committee has summoned Hockey Canada officials to explain their choice of Shane Doan as captain of the national team at the World Hockey Championship.   At issue is an alleged derogatory remark by Doan toward a French-Canadian referee during a game in 2005.

Although I have a great deal to say about this, I've decided not to waste my time acknowledging this overreaction because apparently I don't have the time our members of parliament have.  I'm not going to share the personal embarrassment I feel over this.  I'm just going to let this one go...

Here's hoping Canada wins gold in Russia and Doan leads the charge.  Maybe I'll write about that when it happens, but I'm not writing about this.
