Instead, the station says it accidentally received an email from spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick urging his colleagues to ignore the inquiry and what sounded like a jab at the U.S. government shutdown. “I think I would just ignore, it is local news doing a story on a lost dog. Their entire government is shut down and about to default and this is how the US media spends its time,” the station said the e-mail read. Word quickly spread online, with many voicing their outrage over the company’s response. “If you ever fly with your pet, you might not want to choose Air Canada,” one wrote on Twitter. The airline addressed the controversy in a statement Friday. “Air Canada acknowledges inappropriate comments were made in response to a reporter’s follow-up questions for additional details regarding Larry,” it said. “However, Air Canada has been providing the best available information to media on this matter. These comments do not reflect Air Canada’s standards or professionalism, and do not refer to the search for Larry by Air Canada employees which is ongoing.” Larry’s temporary owner said she was furious when she heard about the message.
Brennan Linsley/AP TORONTO (AP) — Former NHL star Joe Sakic was inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame on Wednesday night. Sakic helped the Colorado Avalanche win two Stanley Cup titles and is now the team’s executive vice president of hockey operations. He also won titles at the Winter Olympics, world hockey championship, World Cup of Hockey and world juniors. ”To play for your country, I got a chance to play with Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, and I wouldn’t have had that happen on my regular team,” Sakic said. ”Any time you put the Canadian jersey on, you just felt something more and something special. The game just seemed to mean a little bit more. We never took that for granted.” He was inducted along with Olympic champion curler Russ Howard, cyclist Alison Sydor, late five-time Paralympian Andre Viger and the 1992 Olympic champion women’s coxless four rowing team of Kirsten Barnes, Brenda Taylor, Jessica Monroe-Gonin, Kay Worthington and Jennifer Walinga.
