Premier Rachel Notley issued the following statement expressing her best wishes for the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games:
“Albertans were swept up in the excitement and inspiration of the recent Olympic Winter Games in South Korea. Now, as the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games begin in PyeongChang, we look forward to the same intensity of excitement and an even greater level of inspiration.
“Ten elite Alberta-based athletes join their national teammates, determined to triumph in their sport, and to show the world the mastery of their abilities. Through their tireless dedication to excellence, Canada’s Paralympic athletes challenge us all to dream the greatest of dreams.
“We are proud to be represented by these extraordinary women and men. We wish them, their coaches, support staff, families and friends all the best and a truly amazing experience at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang.
“Go Canada go!”
