KINGSTON, ON, Feb. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - I would like to congratulate the
Ontario Team, skipped by Rachel Homan, on their victory at the Scotties
Tournament of Hearts. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to
attend this very exciting tournament of Canadian Women's curling.
Events like this not only create interest and participation in the sport
of curling, but also help create stronger, more vibrant communities.
As Minister of State (Sport), I also wish to thank the organizers and
volunteers for their dedication in bringing the Scotties Tournament of
Hearts to life. To the family, friends, coaches, and spectators, I want
to thank you for your continued interest in this sport.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, I wish skip Rachel Homan, lead
Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk, third Emma Miskew, alternate
Stephanie LeDrew, coach Earle Morris, and consultant Natalie
Durand-Bush all the best as they continue their pursuit of excellence
at the 2013 World Women's Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia.
We are proud of the dedication and commitment of our athletes and will
continue to support the advancement of sport in Canada.
