OTTAWA, June 22, 2012 /CNW/ - As Minister of State (Sport), I offer my heartfelt congratulations to wheelchair tennis athletes Joel Dembe and Philippe Bédard, who were today named to the 2012 Canadian Paralympic Team.
Our athletes are an enormous source of pride for all Canadians. That is why the Harper Government is proud to provide our continued support for Paralympic sports and our Canadian Paralympic athletes who will proudly represent our great nation on the world stage.
