In reply to Re: How much naturalised canadiens have GB team? posted by TAL-MAN on 08 July 1999 at 13:54 GMT:
To be honest with you, GB has a more passive role in the "recruitment" of Brit-Canadians than other countries. Many of the GB Canucks such as Kevin Conway have played for league teams in Britain for 10, 15 years or more and have settled in their new country. Others like Darren Hurley have British parentage and deserve the right to choose which country they represent.
This is a free society (unless you're dealing with immigration authorities ;o) ) so why should someone who has paid British taxes for 10 years or has 100% British blood be stopped from representing that country?
