This past week was a bad week for me other Canucks fans. Not only did the Canucks get out scored by the Bruins this week, some morons decided that it was time to trash the city again for several hours. But then the comments/articles about the Canucks being dirty, divers, etc came out and it, for a better lack of a word, pissed me off. Granted most of the media covering the Stanley Cup Finals were from out east and hadn't exactly watched a lot of Canucks games, but when you call out players and say that they basically don't deserve the captaincy, etc., then maybe you should question your own integrity. I understand that journalists have their own biases when they go and write/say something, they bring their biases with them. But when you, as a journalist, go out and deliberately show your biases, you have no right calling yourself a journalist, whether it be through radio, print, TV, or the internet. Sure you can bring your passion and your interests and I may disagree with your opinions, but don't come out and blantely disregard the talent of individual athletes nor their passion. Sure they may break down and are pissed off when they don't win the championship trophy, but don't say they are weaklings because they break down. Remember they are human and that you would probably do the same; they have worked hard to come to this place.
Also, when you go and dis a team, do so in an ethical way. Don't go and do what Dan Tercer of 630 CHED in Edmonton did the day after the Canucks lost the SCF.

from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the
salons of Paris, and a fiancée willing to sacrifice his entire
inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that
her birthfather, a man she never knew, won't be able to walk her down

Description: From award-winning and
bestselling author Michael Redhill comes a darkly comic literary
thriller about a woman who fears for her sanity--and then her life--when
she learns that her doppelganger has appeared in a local park.
Mason has a doppelganger. At least, that's what people tell her.
Apparently it hangs out in Kensington Market, where it sometimes buys
churros and shops for hats. Jean doesn't rattle easy, not like she used
to. She's a grown woman with a husband and two kids, as well as a
thriving business, and Toronto is a fresh start for the whole family.
She certainly doesn't want to get involved in anything dubious, but
still . . . why would two different strangers swear up and down they'd
just seen her--with shorter hair furthermore?
