ROY MacGREGOR, NEW ADVISOR TO PM?

In this morning's Globe and Mail, Roy MacGregor strongly suggested that hockey might need some political interference to pressure it to clean up the game.

This afternoon in London Ontario the Prime Minister told professional hockey to "clean up your act."

Martin said neither he nor the federal government would likely intervene in the investigation into Bertuzzi's attack on Colorado Avalanche rookie Steve Moore on Monday night.

But Martin added he "could discuss (the issue) with the minister of sport."

"I think that Canadians feel that there is a problem with hockey, there's a problem with violence in sports and that it should be dealt with."

I wonder if the Prime Minister read the Globe this morning?
