How cool is this picture? That massive flag was unfurled yesterday from the roof of THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener. It was like the cherry on top of the sundae that was our rally in support of a bid for the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

Waterloo Region is competing for the Games against three other regions in Ontario — Sudbury, Niagara, and Ottawa. The competition is tough but we like our chances….and we don’t like to lose.

The Evaluation Committee was in town yesterday touring places like Chicopee, Christie Digital, and the University of Waterloo. And in case you missed the rally yesterday in downtown Kitchener (or just wondered what the heck was going on), this is what it looked like. I was truly blown away by not only the size but the enthusiasm of the crowd. Great job!

I was also watching the Evaluation Committee as that massive flag was revealed and you could tell there was a ‘wow factor’ with them.

We’ll find out at the end of March if we’re the successful community. Cross your fingers!
