Good luck to Canada’s Paralympic team in Rio

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!

Go Canada, go!

Today, the world’s top athletes gather in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics and Canada is represented by the very best from coast to coast to coast.

Qualifying to compete in the Olympics takes hard work and dedication. With so much talent in Canada, I know that making it to this milestone is certainly no easy feat.

Congratulations to all of Team Canada’s athletes on this incredible achievement.

And, a special congratulations to Jen Kish from Edmonton Griesbach. As team captain of the first ever Canadian Olympic women’s rugby sevens team, you are making history. Edmontonians and all Canadians are cheering you on.

I wish each and every athlete wearing the maple leaf the very best, as you take on the world’s best.

Your accomplishments are already a source of great pride for Canadians.

Go Canada, go!
