Following up on my piece from this week, it has been widely reported that Alexander Ovechkin will receive a two game ban for his knee-on-knee hit on Carolina's Tim Gleason.

H1N1, Hockey and Social Privilege

Last week, the Calgary Flames managed to obtain the much coveted H1N1 vaccine whilst supplies were running short and others more in need were made to wait. After this information became public, national outcry soon ensued. Many pointed to this as another example of celebrities receiving more favourable treatment than the rest of the Canadian populace.
