Manitoba in the limelight today at Vancouver Games

  • Print

TODAY is Manitoba's day to shine at the Olympics.

Regardless of what happens on the ice or the slopes, the Keystone Province will be front and centre throughout the day in Vancouver.

Premier Greg Selinger has arrived in B.C. and last night was a special guest at the province's Homecoming 2010 social at the Commodore Ballroom on Granville Street. It was to feature performances by Manitoba's Doc Walker, Streetheart, Eagle & Hawk, Inward Eye and members of Chic Gamine, and was hosted by Ace Burpee.

Throughout the day, Manitoba artists will be at a number of locations, our music will be played at various sporting venues and Made-in-Manitoba films will be shown in the athletes' village.

And as medal winners gather tonight to collect their gold, silver or bronze, the victory celebration concert will feature Manitoba acts like Burton Cummings and Doc Walker.

Manitoba is spending an estimated $6.4 million to promote the province at the Games, including $2.3 million for a pavilion in downtown Vancouver showcasing the province's eco-friendly initiatives, immigration programs and tourist destinations.
