Minister of *National Defense Breaks Arm in Charity Rugby Match

Apparently Peter MacKay broke his arm playing a charity rugby game that raised over $25,000 for the Military Families Fund. I think we all wish him a speedy recovery and I hope that he's back to full strength soon. National Greats like Rod Snow and Morgan Williams were also on the field for the game, so good on all of them for supporting such a great cause.

(On a side note, 'The Minister of Defense' is a pretty badass nickname for him to roll onto the pitch with, hey? And I'm betting the fear that our Defense Minister could literally knock his foreign counterparts to the ground at any given moment is probably a pretty sweet bargaining tool for Canada when it comes to military matters).
