    Jennifer Jones becomes world champion

    WINNIPEG, March 31 /CNW/ - Wellington West Holdings Inc., a privately
held, employee-owned financial services firm, congratulates colleague Jennifer
Jones and Team Canada members Cathy Overton-Clapham, Jill Officer and Dawn
Askin, for bringing home the Gold at the women's world curling championships
yesterday.
    "We are so proud of Jen and her team for their success," said Kish
Kapoor, president, Wellington West Holdings Inc. "Team Canada demonstrated
amazing focus. They approached every game as a new opportunity to do their
best. They truly deserved this win."
