A Message from John Furlong, Chief Executive Officer Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
The Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games are Canada’s Games!
This is our time to shine, our time to show the world who we are and what we can do – from coast to coast to coast.
Beyond the showcasing of outstanding athletic and cultural performances, we believe the Games can touch the soul of our nation. The Games have the capacity to inspire people of all ages, prompt community celebration and pride, foster unity, embrace diversity and instill a genuine spirit of peace in us all. Through the Games we can become nation-builders, champions at home and at play and we can become better citizens of the world.
Although the 2010 Winter Games will be held in Vancouver, the Games belong to us all – to all Canadians and to everyone around the world who share with us the ideal of a world made better through sport and the sharing of our many different cultures.
Come and join us – as a spectator, a worker, a volunteer, a fan – and be part of an extraordinary experience. It will be the time of our lives!
