Mr. Speaker, the media will never again beat up on Reform. Last night the official opposition defeated the best ball hockey players the Parliamentary Press Gallery could provide, not once, but twice.
The Reform Right Wings downed the Giants of Journalism 6-4 in a ball hockey challenge. The Stornoway stars beat the media by the same 6-4 score. One would think they would improve after the first thrashing.
Star media players like Eric Sorensen, Vincent Marisal, Jim Munson and Sheldon Alberts; defencemen like Daniel Leblanc, Gilles Toupin and Feschuk; and goalie Joel-Denis Bellavance, just could not beat Reformers.
In the final, the Reform Right Wings, playing with a 50-year old wonder kid named White, nicknamed “flash” for athletic reasons only, won the championship. If the Press Gallery can get prepared for a rematch, Reformers are ready to devastate them again.
However, the media should understand, we want no whining and we in turn will report the events accurately, as they sometimes do.
