QUOTED: Tim Hudak explains what the Toronto Maple Leafs and Justin Bieber have in common

QUOTED: Tim Hudak explains what the Toronto Maple Leafs and Justin Bieber have in common

—Progressive Conservative leader and Boston Bruins fan Tim Hudak, on why Toronto’s home team is just like the prank-lovingJesus tattoo-sporting pop star. Though Hudak praised the city for having “the best damn hockey market in the world,” his warm feelings don’t extend to the perenially struggling Leafs (he calls their plans to rebuild “another way of continuing to strive for mediocrity”). So, what does the naysayer think could help? He told the Globe and Mail that competition from another Southern Ontario team would force the Leafs to pull up their socks (we’re looking at you, Markham). Although we agree with Hudak that the woebegone Leafs need to get their act together, we doubt alienating both the Bieber-loving and Maple Leafs-loving demographics is a smart political move. [Globe and Mail]
