Why Canada has had a Bad Year
In the past year, Canada has legitimized gay state-marriage. Our closest semblance to a conservative party was betrayed by a high-ranking member who crossed the floor to join the corrupt governing party, just in time to save it from a confidence vote that came down to a single member's swing vote. Our socialist party entered an unholy union with the minority government as well, in exchange for a socialist spending spree. And a conservative-minded independent member of Parliament voted with the government to save it from the confidence vote. Our government has been plagued with financial scandals and patronage appointments that, if we were a small African country, would have prompted the Americans to liberate us by now.
It's been a bad year for morality in Canada, and I think I know why.
We went for a whole year without hockey.
Seriously, I think I'm on to something here.
At all hockey games with Canadian teams participating, our national anthem is sung.
Part of the lyrics say, "God keep our land glorious and free." This is, technically, a prayer.
Normally, millions of Canadians, in the arenas and watching at home, will sing the anthem.
Millions of Canadians, last year, did not pray for God to protect Canada.
Thank God hockey's back!
