OTTAWA, Sept. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Today I am pleased to join all Canadians
in celebrating the third annual Sports Day in Canada - a celebration of
sport at all levels, from our youngest participants, to our
inspirational world-class athletes.
As a proud supporter of this special event, our government remains
committed to providing opportunities for Canadians of all ages to
engage in sport and physical activity, and to benefit from an active
and healthy lifestyle.
Sports Day in Canada is one way we can all participate - whether we are
playing one of our favourite sports, or taking up something completely
new. It is about coming together in the spirit of sport with family and
friends in our communities.
It is estimated that more than a million Canadians from coast to coast
to coast will participate in this year's Sports Day in Canada. From
open houses, to tournaments and try it days, this exciting day is a
perfect opportunity to get out and active, while having fun.
On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada,
I commend ParticipACTION, True Sport and CBC/Radio Canada on presenting
the third annual Sports Day in Canada. I encourage all Canadians to
join me, along with many of our amazing Olympians, Paralympians,
coaches and athletes, in making this the best Sports Day in Canada
