CBC Radio One PM Pierre Trudeau sends telegram to Canadians after Summit Series

After Canada's victorious hockey game against the Soviets, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau drafts a congratulatory telegram for Team Canada in Moscow. He says the win is especially remarkable because the players were able to pull up from behind. For the past couple of hours, all regular activity was put on hold as Canada watched game 8 on television sets at home and in bars across the country. Trudeau says, "I think even the election campaign, as far as I know, has ground to a standstill and Canadians will no doubt feel very elated about it."
