Someone who loves hockey even more than Stephen Harper


Getting back to our new friend, Floyd Roland, seems the NWT Premier has been suspended.

By the Yellowknife Rec Hockey League.

For fighting.

“The game got a bit aggressive,” Roland admitted to The Canadian Press in an interview from Edmonton on Wednesday. “I did my job as a defenceman, separated a fellow from the puck a couple of times and he took exception to that. He got aggressive with me. “I kept playing my game, which means when things got a little more heated, I stayed in the battle.”

This certainly adds a new level of intrigue to tomorrow’s meeting of the First Ministers.
