Statement from the Canadian Olympic Committee

December 30, 2013 

STATEMENT FROM THE CANADIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

TORONTO – Following two separate attacks in two days in Volgograd, Russia, the Canadian Olympic Committee has issued the following statement:

“Our thoughts are first and foremost with the families and friends of those affected by the appalling attacks in Russia which have claimed more than 30 innocent lives. The Canadian Olympic Family is deeply saddened and stands firmly with the people of Russia during this difficult time.

When inhuman acts of violence occur in one part of the world, we are all affected. We offer our full support to the Russian Olympic Committee and those tasked with ensuring a safe Olympic Games for the world’s athletes, coaches and visitors.

We have complete faith in the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee in upholding the appropriate security levels at the Olympic Games. We also believe in their ability to work collaboratively with other Governments and National Olympic Committees to ensure that all necessary precautions and measures are taken.”

– Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee
