According to Photo 4 it was "a gathering of INVITED guests" :-) I am guessing that the Telegram reporter who posted the pictures (Mr. Whiffen?) is a disgruntled Habs fan given that the word "Canadiens" shows up whenever you hover the mouse pointer over one of the pictures.

hmmm...didn't even know there was the opportunity to see Mike and the Cup in St. John's - looks like the politicians kept this event to themselves.
