But maybe the Summit Series and its violence is something I might have to focus on with an additional chapter. I will get back to this. Thanks for the notice.
I believe the military topics on HNIC are in large part due to the influence of Don Cherry. Others who remember more of HNIC's history may be able to give a better opinion.
It is unusual within a Canadian context. I can see how it would be jarring to Europeans. It would probably seem more normal to Americans.
