The fact is that is not reality. Most Canadians, myself included, have the opinion it (province) doesn't and shouldn't matter....but the fact is it Matters a Great Deal to Hockey Canada. Hockey Canada would rather lose the Olympics with their version of team Canada, then win with a team comprised entirely of players from "English Canada" That is the reality.
