Member’s Statement – 2017.12.11 – Olympic Curling
December 11, 2017
Mr. Len Webber (Calgary Confederation, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, the eyes of Canada’s curling world were focused on the Roar of the Rings tournament this past weekend in Ottawa that featured teams from across Canada.
Olympic spots were on the line.
I was there and the competition was fierce. The fans were passionate. It was curling competition at its best.
After many games, lots of cheering, agonizing losses and triumphant victories, it was down to the finals on Sunday.
For the women, the final match saw Team Homan of Ottawa best Calgary’s Chelsea Caren, Cathy Overton-Clapham, Jocelyn Peterman and Laine Peters.
On the men’s side, Manitoba’s Team McEwen was bested by Calgary’s finest.
A hearty congratulations to Calgary’s Skip Kevin Koe and his team of Marc Kennedy, Brent Laing and Ben Hebert.
You’re off to the Olympics!
Calgary and the rest of Canada will be cheering for you every step of the way.
