Letters to the Editor 

While I am not a huge hockey fan, I do occasionally enjoy watching Olympic hockey. I have been very disappointed, however, in the limited media coverage the successful Canadian women's hockey team has received compared to the countless stories I have heard and read in the past few days of the abysmal failures of the men's team. Just this evening the CTV evening news reported the women's gold medal win in about three or four seconds and then went on with a five minute story about the problems with the men's team. It seems to me that women's hockey is not looked upon as the real thing- that we value only the men's team as a true measure as our talent as Canadian hockey players. I'm sick and tired of it. I say big congrats to the women, and better luck to the men next time. Let's make the story a positive one since our women worked hard, played hard and pulled off the gold to boot!
