St. Pierre turns hockey-mad Canada into MMA mecca
While such a statement borders on treason in hockey-mad Canada, White’s boast cannot not be simply dismissed with St. Pierre set to headline the biggest mixed martial arts event ever held in North America Saturday at a 55,000 seat Rogers Center that sold out in a matter of hours.
That should be “Rogers Centre” not “Rogers Center.” For a large Canada-based news organization, that type of mistake shouldn’t happen…

Allies vow no halt to campaign until Gaddafi goes
Washington, which led the campaign in its first week, has since turned over command to NATO and taken a back seat role. Britain and France complain that other NATO allies have not provided enough fire power to take out Gaddafi’s armour and allow the rebels in control of the east to sweep him from power.
Once again you have omitted Canada’s contribution to the Libyan conflict.
Canada’s Conservatives lose ground in poll
