Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the government is moving forward with a plan to put defibrillators in recreational arenas across the country, saying hockey rinks are often "witness to medical emergencies, occasionally with tragic results."
Speaking at a rink in Saskatoon, Harper said too many people die because their heart stops while playing hockey and help does not arrive in time to save their life.
