oh, the same way that B stands for Baseball in the old Expo logo? (ie. Expos League Baseball)

well, i would say i'm far more wrong than right on this one but it's always a good discussion

what i learned in snooping around the net was that the older logo (with the A inside the C) stood for Athletic club

i forgot this was a Thanksgiving thread....I would like give thanks that I am not a Habs fan

i was also seeking The Sweater for years (usually only caught it unexpectedly on TVOntario, back when I watched tv on rabbit ears, it was the clearest station next to CBC) and so I started subscribing to National Film Board catalogue when I found out they were releasing stuff ...I was excited when I ordered the VHS about 10 years ago for my eldest nephew...I think he thought it was quite weird, lol...besides CBC archives, I don't think you will find anything more Canadian than at the NFB archives...some stuff is actually even too Canadian for me, lol ...eg) the NWT stuff
