Councillor Ranj Pillai will be front and centre when the puck drops at Hockey Day in Canada at the end of this month.

Monday he was granted $2,500 in travel expenses to fly to Stratford, Ontario, for the weeklong event which pulls in NHL stars and tourists from around the country.

He’s interested in bringing CBC’s Hockey Day in Canada up to Whitehorse in 2011 and thinks the city has a good chance of winning the bid.

CBC has expressed interest in showcasing the event in a northern town next year, but the city will be up against Yellowknife for a chance to host.

Travel expenses were also granted Mayor Bev Buckway, allowing her to attend the Vancouver Olympics for the Yukon Day celebration on February 20th.
