Myopic reaction Dudley, Bob Probert comes to mind. Access to PEDs is the issue not that Canadah is void of the same influences. It is just has more land. So does Sweden and Finland in comparison to population. Babe Ruth was a drunk, Mickey Mantle too, if you want to look at Rocket Richard and compare then I say only one thing, Yawn! 21st century PEDs have not hit the loving country of Canada*. If you have read my views on Canada then you would realize the weight of my argument. I love the Canadian neighbors!
*Canada is still a homogenious society.

Hmm, according to the thread title and subsequent postings, Canada does not do drugs??? Baseball for clarification is a 19th century game that is still out selling attendance than any other sport in NA (73 million). It has been "dying" for decades reaching back to 1930. Also it is though a mirror image of American urban life. Watch Ken Burn's Baseball. For the Canadian pureist, 35 million in a land mass 2nd in the world. I would tend to think less influence of urban influence on those farms in Alberta. Oh well I am just as stupid as saying that as to say Canada is void of drugs. PEDs are a matter of availabitlity in larger markets and cities. It is a business. Why would you set up a PED factory in Edmonton. Geez. Baseball is not dying, NAS can give you the $$ amounts better than I on why it is still a cash cow. Even the beloved NFL football season/playoffs does not match the attendance figures. Lastly in a random way, Finland and Sweden have small populations and small cities, both hockey incubaters. I will say this, NAS has the thread of the week. He woke me up from a long summer's dream of Bs 2013-14.
