On publicity hounds

For those looking for the most substantive clips from today's Question Period, the segments on the HST and torture in Afghanistan are worth a look - particularly for the news from the latter that the NDP will be presenting a motion in the House of Commons calling for an inquiry.

But while Jim Prentice's appearance was predictably void of news on the environment, Jane Taber's mention that Prentice will be presenting the Grey Cup today seems worth at least a bit of followup. On my quick look, the Grey Cup has traditionally been presented by either the CFL's commissioner or the Prime Minister. So I'll raise the question: is there any precedent for a non-PM member of the federal government presenting the trophy?

(And by the way, Go 'Riders! Consider this a Grey Cup open thread.)
