Hello from Halifax!

Thanks and Come Back Soon!
by Chris Morrissey, CEO, 2011 Canada Games

The 18 days of the Games have flown by, and while I'll leave it up to everyone else to judge our success, we're ending these Games with above all else - pride and confidence.

The speed of our ice, the quality of our snow, the hospitality of our people. The volunteers, staff, and officials who took it upon themselves to ensure that these athletes had all the tools they needed to break records and set new personal bests.

I'm so pleased with the way we were able to face challenges head-on and keep the focus on the athletes.

The community support for these Games was outstanding - Halifax and Nova Scotia truly embraced the Games. We had sold-out venues almost every day of the Games, and incredible crowds each night for musical performances at Grand Parade. It's a proud moment.

Thank you to the rest of Canada. Come back soon.
