Canada's punter

Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal, rising to speak before Question Period today, finds the narrow bit of national pride to be found in yesterday’s Super Bowl victory of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mr. Speaker, yesterday Canadians and Americans sat at their televisions watching the tremendous sports spectacle of the Super Bowl. However, there were no greater fans than my neighbours, Don and Evelyn Berger, parents of Pittsburgh Steelers punter, Mitch Berger, the only Canadian player on the field. Mitch grew up in Delta playing community football and graduated from North Delta Secondary School. He has made his parents, our community and country very proud. I ask all members of the House to join me in congratulating North Delta’s Mitch Berger, our Canadian Super Bowl champion.
