“On behalf of all Canadians, I congratulate the Ottawa Redblacks on their 2016 Grey Cup victory over the Calgary Stampeders in Toronto, Ontario. I also applaud both teams for having won their respective division championships.
“The Grey Cup is one of our country’s most popular sporting events, and this year was no different with millions of Canadians tuned in to watch the game from coast to coast to coast. Even on a plane flying back from Madagascar, Africa, I was following the game as best I could, getting updates from my staff.
“Finally, congratulations to both teams and the Canadian Football League for providing another great season full of memorable moments in sport, and to the organizers and hosts of this year’s successful Grey Cup championship game.”
