2018 PYEONGCHANG WINTER OLYMPICS
I am thrilled to rise today to speak about the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
I want to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly congratulate the Republic of Korea, which is hosting the games once more after three decades have passed since the 1988 Seoul games. Canadian athletes from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador will take to the slopes and ice to compete for Canada against the best athletes of the world. I’m sure Canadians from coast to coast to coast are filled with pride and excitement as we prepare to witness Team Canada enter the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on February 9 and compete over the course of the games.
