Canada wants to force cable companies to unbundle TV

Were playing in Edmonton and hes from B.C., just down the road. He was the heavy favourite for a myriad of reasons: he was old; he was the sentimental favourite; he was the biggest name in the event; and if he wins the final hes representing Canada at the worlds in B.C., his home province. Anyway, the game went back and forth, all the way through. We were two up, playing in the ninth and they got three on us, which should never happen. So all of a sudden were in trouble. But then in the 10th end, somehow I had a wide-open hit for five to win the Brier. Im sitting in the hack going, Jesus Christ, if I miss this one. Two years in a row and all that. Its so difficult to get to that point to begin with, and youre young and youre thinking, What are the odds that Im even going to get back here? Its an extreme amount of pressure. It wasnt a hard shot, but under the circumstances, it sure was. And I can still remember letting that rock go. I can still see it. It was such a relief, making that shot. After what happened the year before I think it just made it a little more special. I have no idea what would have happened to me if I had missed that shot. You really wonder what shapes your life.
