Station 25 of the Montreal Urban Community Police Department invited the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal to a volleyball game on Thursday, November 17.

The heavily media-covered game was played at the Currie Sports Centre at McGill University.

I’m sad to report that the courageous Native team lost three matches out of four. And not without practice. The centre organizes games Thursday nights at the Ecole Dupuis at 5530 Dupuis St. Contact the centre and sign up. Show Montreal’s “finest” that Natives are more than capable of whacking the pigskin around the court just as well as anybody.

Oh, by the way, the friendship centre has issued an informal challenge to The Nation.

Will The Nation accept as any self-respecting magazine should? We have yet to respond. Watch this space for an update and pix.
