The following statement was given today in the House of Assembly by the Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier and Minister of Labrador and Aboriginal Affairs:

Premier Congratulates Athletes and Volunteers of Labrador Winter Games

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in this Honourable House to speak about Labrador’s premier sporting event, the Labrador Winter Games, which took place from March 13 to the 19 in and around Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

It was an honour to participate in the memorable opening ceremonies and see the athletes preparing for their events and representing their respective communities. I was particularly pleased to see my Honourable colleagues and several other leaders from across Labrador.

The games brought together athletes, team leaders and excited fans from all over Labrador. They highlighted Labradorians’ love of the outdoors and the celebration of culture and traditions, while presenting some of the most spirited competition this province has to offer. I had the opportunity to watch the table tennis and snowshoeing matches.

Mr. Speaker, I am proud that the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador was the primary sponsor of the Labrador Winter Games and I thank the Board of Directors, guided by Chairman Joseph Goudie, the Labrador Winter Games staff and over 375 volunteers for another successful Labrador Winter Games.

I also congratulate all the athletes who participated as well as all those who were successful in winning their events.

Mr. Speaker, I invite my colleagues to join with me in congratulating the community of Cartwright for winning the overall event and taking home the Labrador Cup, and indeed all those who participated in this amazing event.

Thank you.
