Today, Canadians go to the polls to vote and if you’re a Canadian like me, you have to ask yourself one question – which leader is a Habs fan? And which leader wants to keep the country together.
Stephen Harper is a hockey fan and apparently is writing some kind of hockey history book as we speak. Although I’ve been hearing this forever and still haven’t seen the book at the book store. Harper’s been an Albertan for years and probably cheers for either the Flames or Oilers, but I’ll bet when he’s campaigning in Quebec he says he’s a Habs fan. You can’t trust politicians.
Michael Ignatieff is a Torontonian and might know what hockey is.
Jack Layton plays guitar quite well.
Gilles Duceppe is a Montrealer which is a great start, but he’s also leader of the Bloc Quebecois. I suppose this means he’d like to change the name of our team to Les Canadiens de Quebec if he were to be elected. I’m not sure how that would work.
The Green Party is a possibilty. I’ve always liked Red Green and I guess he and the gang are gathered at Possum Lodge right now as votes are tallied. Good luck, Red. Oh, are you a Habs fan, Red?
Pretty sure the Marxist-Leninist party aren’t Habs fans. Although I’ve always loved their music. To me, there was no band better than George, Ringo, Marx, and Lenin.
The Marijuana Party might be Habs fans. They can’t remember.
The hell with it. I’m voting for Danno’s favourite – The Silly Party. These guys are so great they must be Habs fans.
