Learn French Saku

from The National Post,

An unlikely name popped up Tuesday at provincial public hearings looking into reasonable accommodation for religious minorities in Quebec: Saku Koivu.

Lawyer Guy Bertrand, a separatist-turned-federalist-turned-separatist-again, dropped the gloves about the Montreal Canadiens’ captain’s lack of fluency in French.

Bertrand was critical of the Finnish-born Koivu’s failure “to respect the right of Quebecers to be served in French.”

Updated 6:46pm ET:
From TSN, a response from Koivu,

“I’m not perfect,” he told a scrum of reporters at the Bell Centre. “There’s nothing we can do when politicians have opinions on the team or on me Sometimes you can’t control what’s being said out there.”
