The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement congratulating the Toronto Argonauts on winning the 105th Grey Cup:
“On behalf of all Canadians, I congratulate the Toronto Argonauts on winning the 105th Grey Cup over the Calgary Stampeders in Ottawa, Ontario.
"What better way to celebrate Canada 150 than coming together on a crisp and snowy night in the nation's capital to watch the Grey Cup.
“The Grey Cup is one of Canada’s favourite traditions, and the pinnacle of Canadian football. It has been part of Canadian sports since 1909, when Governor General Earl Grey donated the first Grey Cup to the Canadian Football League.
“I congratulate the City of Ottawa and the RNation for hosting the 105th Grey Cup. I also thank both teams and the Canadian Football League for another memorable year and all they do to unite Canadians around sports.”
