Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore has sparked a mini uproar with his Tweet calling the Vancouver Canucks ‘Canada’s team’ in the NHL playoffs.
Moore is from Vancouver, so he may be a little biased, but Canadiens players were not impressed by the comment.
“I think if you asked anyone, the majority of people around Canada,
they’re still going to say that they’re Habs fans,” Josh Gorges said.
“That shocks me,” added Michael Cammalleri.
Cammalleri added that it was clearly the Habs that were “Canada’s team.” He said that in a 2009 survey, one-third of
respondents said the Canadiens were Canada’s team.
