Canada Welcomes The World

I'm proud to be an Canadian even more than ever.  Today Vancouver finally welcomes the world. Olympic gold at home is our dream - we believe.

Did you know five interlocking rings on the logo represent the five continents or major geographical areas of the world.  The colors of the rings represent the flags of the countries each of which includes at least one of the following colors: blue, black, red, yellow, and green.

Don't worry if we don't have enough snow - we'll make some. 

We joke that we just tell people it rains here, to keep them away.
It does rain but that's what keeps it so green.
We tell our kids from a very young age that they're "waterproof".

His personal story of inspiration makes this gold extra special.
