LONDON, United Kingdom, July 31, 2012 /CNW/ - On behalf of the
Government of Canada, I would like to congratulate Bell Canada on
renewing its commitment to the Olympic movement and demonstrating the
kind of leadership that will help Canada continue to achieve podium
As the single largest contributor to sport in this country, our
Government recognizes that the Olympic Games provide Canada with the
opportunity to promote Canadian culture and athleticism, while sharing
our values of openness, equality, and respect for human rights.
Support from the private sector, like that announced today, will play a
key role in ensuring that Canada maintains its status as a leading
sport nation on the international stage.
I would also like to thank the Canadian Olympic Committee for its
ongoing dedication to promoting Olympic ideals and excellence.
As Minister of State (Sport), I wish all of our athletes the best of
luck as they continue their pursuit of excellence here in London and on
the road to the Sochi 2014 Winter Games.
