SENATORS LOOK TO THE CHAIR: ROD HELP US, EVERY ONE OF US
Published March 12, 1999
Senators Chair Rod Bryden met with 10 Ottawa-area MPs yesterday "as part of his campaign to persuade" government officials that Canadian NHL teams face "unfair competition" from U.S. teams, according to Graham Fraser of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Bryden focused on int'l trade. Liberal House Leader Don Boudria: "He did not ask for tax relief for hockey players or anything like that. He gave us a briefing on some of his concerns" (GLOBE & MAIL, 3/12). Bryden: "The next federal budget doesn't come until next year and if I'm going to move by the fall of 2000, I'll have to have an agreement done long before that" (OTTAWA SUN, 3/12).
