Off to London!
We can all remember what an honour it was to host the Olympics in 2010. This year we are proud of our athletes competing in the Summer Olympic Games in London.
Last week, the Government congratulated Simon Whitfield on being named Canada’s flag-bearer at the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Summer Games.
Our Government is committed to supporting Canadian athletes.
Our Government is the single largest contributor to sport in this country, and supports participation and excellence from the playground to the podium.
Our ever-inspiring Canadian athletes are an enormous source of pride for all Canadians, and serve as excellent role models for our youth.
Our Government is committed to help deliver the resources athletes need to climb the podium at the upcoming 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London.
The Government will continue to support Canadian athletes and enhance the Canadian sport system.
I want to wish all of our athletes the best of luck as they compete to be crowned the best in the world!
