Statement made on 05 October 2010 by Senator Maria Chaput

Hon. Maria Chaput:

Honourable senators, on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, I met a special person by the name of Christopher Lee. I want to share with you what this young athlete and Olympian had to say:

Thank you for meeting with us, Senator Chaput. It is an honour to meet you.

My name is Christopher Lee and I live in Whitehorse, Yukon. I've been a Special Olympics athlete for 11 years, and I compete in soccer, bowling, curling and bocce.

I want to thank you for your support. Having your support means the world to me and to my fellow athletes. It is very important.

I would not be here in your office today if it were not for Special Olympics. Special Olympics have given me the chance to excel in life. I'm asking you to continue supporting Special Olympics so that other people like me in my community and across the country can have the opportunity to train and compete in sports.

I congratulate Mr. Lee and all the other fine athletes who are part of Canada's Special Olympics team.
