Video B-Roll Available Via CNW - Canadian Paralympic Athletes highlight Canada's accessible travel experiences



    VANCOUVER, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - The Canadian Paralympic Committee and gold
medalist Paralympic athlete Joanne Kelly joined up with a group of Canadian
travel retailers to announce a new program that highlights Canada's accessible
travel experiences. The "Go Canada" program, and the website
www.gocanadatravel.ca, offers travel products and trips, including accessible
travel experiences. A portion of sales made on the site will be donated to the
Canadian Paralympic Committee.
    The announcement took place on the spectacular Columbia Icefield at the
unveiling of a fully accessible GO CANADA branded Ice Explorer vehicle. The
massive Ice Explorer vehicle is part of the Columbia Icefield Glacier
Experience, which takes visitors on a remarkable 90-minute adventure onto the
surface of Athabasca Glacier, and is but one example of the accessible travel
experiences available in Canada.
    Video package includes b-roll footage of the accessible tourism
experience aboard an Ice Explorer vehicle and the GO CANADA announcement at
the Columbia Icefield, including scenics of Athabasca glacier. Interview
footage includes comments on Canada's accessible tourism experiences from gold
medalist Paralympic athlete Joanne Kelly, Paralympic athlete Josh Dueck, and
others.
