Petition To Recognize Curling As A National Sport



Petition to the House of Commons

  • The sport of curling has been played in Canada for over 200 years and the Montreal Curling Club, founded on January 22, 1807 remains the oldest established sports club in all of North America;
  • Curling brings together people from all walks of life and there are competitive and recreational curlers of all ages, genders, and ethnicities from coast to coast to coast;

  • Canada has the most Men's and Women's world championships, most olympic medals in the sport, and more curlers than any other country in the world; and

  • Curling has been a Canadian staple since confederation and has grown alongside Canada, and curlers today continue to inspire future generations of Canadians in pursing greatness both on and off the ice.
We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to Recognize the sport of Curling as a national sport of Canada, in addition to Hockey and Lacrosse, by amending the National Sports of Canada Act (S.C. 1994, c.14).
You can go to sign the petition by going HERE.
I do like to see my government in action doing the important work.

Only four short months until another season begins.
