Hockey Night in Barrie!

Ontario Tory MP Patrick Brown (at left, with Health Minister Tony Clement) hosted a well-attended “Hockey Night in Barrie” charity game at the local Molson Centre. More than $100 000 was raised for Barrie’s Royal Victoria Hospital.

Alberta MP Brian Storseth still laced them up, even though he’s only been up walking for two weeks after breaking his ankle in an MP vs. Staffer flag football game in June.

Participants included Storseth (far left), Lake, hall of famer Mike Gartner and Saskatchewan Tory MP Rob Clarke.
