Nodar Kumaritashvili death was an unfortunate accident. All the crashes were due to driver error.

The greatest Starfleet Captain...is Canadian! BOO YAAA!
It must have been a hell of a great two weeks out there. The Americans never seem to be lacking in their passion and unity and I have to say I admire that about them. In Canada or at least in Toronto (maybe it's a big city thing) it seems we due lack that passion and unity at times so it's was really nice to see Canadians running threw the streets of Toronto with flags decked out in red and white and singing our national anthem with pride. Unfortunately I missed the closing ceremonies because I went to celebrate our victory with Rain but I'm sure I will be able to find a copy of it somewhere. The Shat is a funny dude.

You are correct. Hockey is still Canada's game though!
