Mr. Rodger Cuzner (Bras d'Or—Cape Breton, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, we are all well aware of the national institution called Hockey Night in Canada , brought to us every Saturday evening during our winters on CBC television and on Radio-Canada.
This coming Saturday, Hockey Night in Canada will celebrate the true spirit of the game with a 13 hour extravaganza, programming from coast to coast to coast. Canadians from Yellowknife, Sydney, Powell River, Fox Valley, Rankin Inlet, Glace Bay and many other communities will share their experience and love of the game. Through those stories we will share hockey's place in the hearts and heartland of Canada.
To draw attention to this celebration, I have the pleasure of proclaiming Saturday February 24 Hockey Day in Canada.
