As you may know Canadians will vote for a new government on May 2nd.

When there is an election campaign in Canada, everything else pretty much takes a back seat.

Well, almost everything.

This coming week there are two debates scheduled between the leaders of the four political parties – one in English and one in French. However, the French language debate which is scheduled to take place on Thursday night coincides with Game 1 of the NHL playoffs between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins.

Gilles Duceppe, leader of the separatist Bloc Quebecois, has called for the French language debate to be moved to the previous night so that Canadians (Quebecois or not) can watch the playoff game. The governing Conservative Party, the Liberal Party and the New Democratic Party (NDP) appear amenable to moving the debate.
