In a tribute to Canada’s sense of pride and achievement in its sports heritage, the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) will be holding a conference entitled Achievement and Legacy: Sports in Canada on April 7-8, 2004 at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec.
The conference will examine the ways in which sports has contributed to the development of Canada’s identity, history and social fabric. The event will feature panel sessions, luncheons and a special session on hockey legend Maurice “Rocket” Richard, and will address issues such as sports and Canadian identity, media and sports and diversity in sport. Come join leading academics, researchers and journalists as well as, Phil Goyette and Dollard St.Laurent, team-mates of Maurice Richard’s, Ralph Mellanby, former Executive Producer of Hockey Night in Canada, and Roch Carrier, author of “The Sweater” and National Librarian of Canada, to celebrate and learn more about Canadian accomplishments and future challenges in sports. The Hon.Stan Keyes, Minister of State (Sport) will be the keynote speaker for the April 7th Luncheon.
