Thank you, Mr. Chairman, committee members, ladies and gentlemen.
We are here today to represent the Canadian Football League and the 100th Grey Cup Festival Committee.
My name is Chris Rudge and I chair that committee. I've just finished seven years as the chief executive officer of the Canadian Olympic Committee and chairman of the Own the Podium program.
We'll conclude our short presentation today with a few words from Mark Cohon, the commissioner of the CFL.
But first, you will hear from Pierre Vercheval, often seen as the face of football in Quebec and former all-star offensive lineman for the Montreal Alouettes, who is now a commentator on the RDS channel, and
Michael “Pinball” Clemons, a former all-star running back and head coach of the Toronto Argonauts and a prominent businessman and community leader.
