Which is exactly what I said. And really? We're going to use their coverage in the OHA to decide who was better? Excuse while I call star Gilbert Brule up and see how he's doing.
True, which is why the fact that there may be only one Montreal newspaper on google archives is particularly useless. They were both covered extensively, so it's not like we have to draw only from one newspaper. Like I said, records are better than they were before, thanks, in large part, to google archives, which I'm sure will keep improving.
