Hockey wins over the French-Language debate!

In national news, Hockey wins over politics ! The debate on French language was moved up to Wednesday April 13th, instead of Thursday April 14th. The consortium organizing the debate wanted to avoid a conflict with the opening playoff game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins for viewers.

The concerns came from Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe. A formal request asking to move up the debate was filed due to worried politicians who assumed having the classic  Hockey matchup between the two bitter rivals and the debate on the same night would split viewership.

Duceppe mentioned that it was in the interest of democracy to allow the maximum number of people to watch the debate, especially in the middle of election period. The consent of all parties participating in the debate was reached, and all were in favour of allowing the widest audiences possible to view the debate.
