“I am a First Nations woman myself from Thunder Bay, and it’s very important to my local. We’ve been designated an Aboriginal local because they make up almost 60-percent of our workforce. We are supporters of number 88 of the Truth and Reconciliation recommendations. That’s why we are here. Our union is very strongly for Aboriginal People in Canada.”
 
Candace Lavalley, Vice Chair, Unifor Ontario Regional Council
 
“It just feels good to be part of something that’s going to inspire and encourage our youth to live a healthy lifestyle. I remember myself going to hockey tournaments and events. I’m hoping these kids will carry these memories for the rest of their lives.”
 
Ted Nolan, Toronto 2017 NAIG Ambassador & former NHL coach
 
“It’s about athletes. It’s about seeing them grow. It’s about role modeling and watching them grow as they start targeting the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan American Games. This is why we are here and what we want to expose to the rest of Canadians.”
