I remember watching a telethon for Ronald McDonald House a few years ago...

...when the total got up over 2 million, I couldn't help but ask myself "How big of a house does this stupid clown need?"

Seriously, good on Hammer.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

The Aquilini's probably donate and raise 100 times that amount through their various causes, so I don't think that's a fair assessment.

Show me one they did not inherit with the club and give me the percentages re:income vs charity compared to the Sedins ,Malholtra and Hamhuis charitable giving as a % of their salaries.Thanks.
FTR,I was not specifying the Vancouver owner act but the NHL owner act currently under way with no NHL hockey for the continent.
But ,I was thinking of the charitable acts of Hamhuis,Malholtra,the Sedins and Hamhuis -not only with cash but with their time.
I have never seen any one of the present owners present at a charity event ,giving of their time.

Do you really think the media is going to report on this or care? Basically what you're saying is because no one has told you it has happened it 100% hasnt happened. Kind of narrow minded.

No,I am saying show me the money.
No,I am saying show me any picture with an Acquilini at a charitable event.
I stand to be corrected if you can do so.

People's charity donations are a private matter, unless they want to announce it publicly. Sometimes charities will mention that you will be listed as a donor on a wall, or in the program.

I guess for some people it's easier to donate money rather then time.

I agree.
I like seeing photo ops of Gillis in the Charlottes and the Caribbean fishing for charities.
That leaves me all warm and fuzzy to see the Pres. and CEO of a major corporation out sport fishing,sparing his valuable time and sharing his wealth helping others in need.

Who cares if he doesn't actually go to the events. It's his coin funding the whole thing.

Hmm, you don't think he's busy making sure that his billion dollar corporation is healthy?

Without owners like him, there is no NHL, and these players aren't millionaires. And without him cutting the cheques for charity events such as golf tournaments, none of it's even possible.

And even though it's not required of the players to make donations like this, they are contractually obligated to attend charity events hosted by the Canucks. So even though they are generous people, they are no more generous than the owners.

So think twice before you criticize a very generous person who is well respected in this community.
