It will air at 6:30 p.m. EST
Get the full scoop here!
UPDATE: I received several reactions to this story via twitter last night. It was a wide range of opinions.
One person compared Skate Canada to Hitler...they're attempting to exterminate gays like he exterminated Jewish people.
A few people were just generally angered and said Skate Canada should butt out of what skater are doing on the ice.
One comment in particular I liked was a person hoping Brian Orser would speak out on the issue and give his opinion. Orser's opinion would certainly carry some weight.
Another tweeter made a good point that while skaters ought to be able to express themselves how they like, it can't hurt to try to broaden the appeal of the sport...good point.
Two tweeters commented on the fact that Elvis Stojko looks much better without a mullet...no joke...they did.
Just received another tweet, one is concerned that the same thing is happening in the U.S., just covertly.
Feel free to tweet me (@ skating102) your thoughts or post them here.
