The Honourable John Weston regarding the new Canadian Olympic mittens

The Hon. John Weston, Member of Parliament for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country made the following statement in the House of Commons October 30, 2012:
Mr. Speaker,

As the cold weather approaches, we’re reminded that our outstanding Canadian athletes will be competing in Sochi, Russia, at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games less than 500 days from now.

Canadians will be once again going for gold against the best in the world and deserve support and encouragement the country can offer.

Canadians from coast to coast to coast are already familiar with the famous HBC Olympic Mittens, worn to show support for our amazing athletes in Vancouver.

Today, in recognition and support for our Olympic hopefuls training for Sochi, I would like to draw your attention to the next generation of HBC Canadian Olympic Red Mittens that will be helping Canadians show their Sochi stripes in support of our amazing Olympic Winter athletes during this world cup season and right up to Sochi 2014!

Go Canada Go!
