CANADA'S MOST POPULAR PARTICIPATION SPORT: A NO-BRAINER?

          For the third year in a row, "soccer retained its
     position as the most popular participation sport" in Canada,
     according to Norman Da Costa of the TORONTO STAR.  Hockey,
     which was "displaced" from the top spot in '96, "held on to
     second place."  The Canadian Soccer Association had 660,008
     registered players in its competitive leagues in '98, while
     hockey recorded 548,013.  In the preceding year, soccer had
     575,785 players and hockey 535,737 (TORONTO STAR, 3/10).
