Don't really see what Rene Angelil has to do with the Canadiens. Not even really a celebrity of any sorts, just married to one... did the Habs have a moment of silence when ex-player Domenic Moore's wife died? Nope. So why for Celine Dion's husband?

Ah, but did Dominic Moore's wife speak French? That's the question.

That's pretty much what it comes down to. If he were English, I highly doubt this would have been a thing.

Same story with the Habs ex-stars... Jean Beliveau gets a special funeral where all the Habs players are asked to attend. Maurice Richard got one at Notre Dame cathedral. Dickie Moore? Nada. Definitely a double-standard for this team supporting French over English.

Did Celine ever sing the Anthem for a Habs game?

If Ginette Reno died, I could understand the moment of silence. She has a link to the team. Celine, not so much. And even then, we're talking about the spouse of a celebrity, who himself is not famous for anything other than being married to Celine and being her agent. Nothing personal against Rene Angelil, may he rest in peace, but to me, this is another political slap in the face by the Habs to Anglophones with the way they make a bigger deal out of things for Francophones.
