The Manitoba government didn’t intend to offend families of fallen Canadian soldiers by naming a lake after a young National Hockey League star, Premier Greg Selinger says.
Selinger’s NDP government was on the hot seat Thursday for its decision to name a small provincial lake after Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, a Winnipeg native, at a ceremony last Sunday.
The province and City of Winnipeg honoured Toews, 22, for his championship hockey season as well as for winning gold with Team Canada at the Vancouver Olympics.
