Mr. Speaker, Bromont has just been named the site of the eastern Canada sports cyclist national training centre.
The primary purpose of this training centre is to promote the development of optimal conditions for the training and development of top level athletes in road, track, cross country and mountain bike racing.
The corporation that managed this centre is already considering the possibility of building a velodrome, to further add to the facilities available in this region for development of this sport. It also plans to offer young people a program of sports combined with study that will help develop our next generation of athletes.
This is very good news for the Bromont region and for cycling in general. The government is pleased to be involved in this undertaking through Sport Canada.
