OTTAWA, March 1, 2013 /CNW/ – Last March, I announced the Government of

Excellence at the National Squash Academy, and today am proud to take
part in the official opening of the first phase – an all-glass doubles

The National Squash Academy is Canada’s first and only facility
dedicated to growing the sport of squash from the ground up. The
Government of Canada is pleased to support such initiatives for the
long-term development of our athletes from playground to podium.

As Minister of State (Sport) and on behalf of the Government of Canada,
I commend Squash Canada and the National Squash Academy’s Centre of
Excellence on their efforts to provide athletes and coaches with
opportunities to realize their goals.
