Hockey by Pat Hills
Hockey is imbued in our culture and common language in Canada. It is just a game, yes. But it's something more, isn't it? It transcends gender, age, ethnicity. It welcomes new Canadians - all values we ascribe to as a nation. It is a source of pride and identity. Every year at the AGM we celebrate this part of our heritage by lacing up our skates, throwing our sticks into the centre of the rink to choose sides - and we play.
