I am thrilled that Joannie was able to capture the bronze medal last night. She has shown the determination and courage of a true athlete. It may have been the hardest thing for her to do but when she looks back when the shock of her mother's death subsides, she will be grateful that she pushed on. It would be what her mother wanted. Joannie is a strong, classy and composed woman and the support and love of her family, friends, and country will see her through this tragedy. She has made the Vancouver 2010 Olympics truly memorable for me.

Congratulations also to the Women's Hockey Team for winning gold with a shutout of 2-0. I was very confident that they would win gold.
WAY TO GO CANADA!
Thank you to all of the Canadian Olympic athletes for making the Vancouver 2010 Olympics so memorable!
