As Premier of New Brunswick, I would like to congratulate all of the members of Team Canada-New Brunswick who will be representing our province at the VIIth Games of La Francophonie in Nice, France, from September 7 to 15, 2013.
I am very proud of the delegation that will represent New Brunswick. In their quest for excellence, the delegation’s athletes and artists have made admirable efforts and shown exemplary discipline in their sport and art.
The Games of La Francophonie are a great opportunity for New Brunswick’s participants to excel on the international scene while engaging in a cultural exchange with other young people from member countries of La Francophonie.
New Brunswick is a unique province, and the athletes and artists who will be representing us at the Games are ambassadors of our rich heritage and a testament to the vitality of our young people.
I wish all of the members of Team Canada-New Brunswick great success. I hope you achieve your goals and broaden your view of the world while celebrating the French language.
