Let The Canada Summer Games Begin

Canada Summer Games is about to descend on Winnipeg. In less than 90 days, Winnipeg will be the site of more than 4000 athletes performing to their very best. It was my thought that all those athletes, friends and families would probably like an insiders guide to the city. You know, best restaurants to refuel, places to relax, shopping areas to kill time, and of course resources for athletes to get a competitive edge.

Why I'm Lucky Andre De Grasse Is My Son

As a parent you don't set out to raise a high-performance athlete, you set out to raise a good kid who will mature into an honourable and productive adult. As he was growing up, I didn't really know that my son, Andre De Grasse, would be one of Canada's top track and field athletes on his way to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games!

The Three Ways I Raised A Canadian Olympian

We all want our children to reach their full potential and the same is true when you're raising an Olympic athlete. My daughter, Stephanie Labbe, started playing soccer when she was 12 and from that point on, a large part of the whole family's life was spent on sport fields and arenas.

I'm Gay, and I'm Supporting Canada's Olympic Team in Sochi

I've had people ask me if that's what I plan to do, as a bisexual person. But that's where the fact that being gay is only one part of me comes in. I'm also a staunchly patriotic Canadian. And I love the winter Olympics, a lot. There's a crossroads, here, for me. Because the delegation travelling from Canada to Sochi is also comprised of staunchly patriotic Canadians and talented athletes. Some of them happen to be gay. And I want to see them succeed.
