Today marks the opening of the 2016 Rio Paralympic Summer Games.
Just weeks after Canada’s proud showing at the Rio Olympic Summer Games, Canadians from coast to coast to coast are ready again to cheer on our talented athletes.
The drive and athleticism of Canada’s Paralympian athletes is truly awe-inspiring.
As they take on the best in the world, I know that the hard-work and dedication of our athletes and their coaches will make us all proud.
I wish each and every Canadian Paralympian the very best.
Go Canada, go!
