Re: “All cultures speak the universal language of hockey,” Letters, Nov. 10.
Navi Dosanjh, you have missed the point.
The fact that your parents have, as you say, lived in Canada for over 20 years and have yet to enjoy the best of Canadian entertainment in hockey is no one’s fault but their own. And dare I say, yours.
It seems for whatever reason, in those 20 years, they have chosen not to at least learn the spoken tongue of the majority of all of the immigrants who have come to this land, which happens to be English or French.
To suggest that the taxpayers of Canada should now have to pay to have hockey broadcast in your parents’ “national language” is an insult to all of the rest of Canadian immigrants that have learned to speak English or French and now enjoy the game as the rest of us do.
I do not object to Punjabi broadcasting of hockey if they can find the funds to pay for it from those who want it.
