Hughes recognizes AMK Special Olympians in House of Commons 

By Rosalind Russell – MP Carol Hughes rose in the House of Commons yesterday to celebrate the achievements of athletes from the Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing riding who recently competed at the Special Olympic Canada Winter Games in Calgary. 

From Manitoulin Island, Skip Tyler Madahbee and team members Dylan Danville, Dayne Tipper, Austin Recollet and William Leclair brought home the gold for curling, and Matthew Bedard won three bronze medals in snowshoeing says Hughes, adding Elliot Lake’s Adam Cormier took home a silver in team and a bronze in singles in five-pin bowling. 

She adds every year, coaches, volunteers, and employees make Special Olympics something to be proud of and it is important that they acknowledge all that they do to support and encourage athletes.
