If the Canucks are the last Canadian team in the play-offs, central Canada will cheer for an American team.  That the CBC refused to broadcast the last Canucks game is further evidence of the degree to which Ontario dominates national institutions. And of course the degree to which the national broadcaster is an ad revenue whore:),.

NB. Any offence given to the hard working men and women of Canada’s prostitution sector by comparing them to the national broadcaster was unintended.
