The Olympics are Here!


sochi1

Today marks the start of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As I, and probably every other Canadian, like to say, the winter Olympics are our Olympics. Afterall, we are winter. This is when we shine! This is when our Canadian pride peaks, when we can finally revel in the stereotypical idea of Canada as a land of snow, ice, and igloos. But our pride doesn’t have to be for Canada alone, why not give Hamilton some love over the next few weeks too? Here are Hamilton’s Olympic athletes!
