A  group of Canadian hockey players visited an army base in New Brunswick. The army gave them a Canadian flag to sign before it was  sent as a gesture of suport for the soldiers in Afghanistan.  One player told his teammates he would only sign his name on a Quebec flag, not a Canadian one.  He is now being threatened with dismissal from his team..  But could you not argue the point this young player was trying to make is the same point Canada’s soldiers are defending and fighting for in Afghanistan?
