Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta SPORTSPLEX OPENING CEREMONY TUESDAY AT 7 P.M. OW WE GO! events of greater import intervened, the idea was kept alive and periodically was discussed by such organizations as the Cana- dian Sports Advisory Coun- cil, its successor, the Cana- dian Amateur Sports Federation, and by the National Advisory Council on Fitness and Amateur Sport. By 1962 and again in 1963 events had progressed to a point where Federal grants were approved for the CASF to study the feasibility of holding national amateur The result was the 'presently accepted CASF proposal for staging dual Canada Games summer and winter .-.in alternating four year cycles. A recommendation also was made which ul- timately resulted in the First Winter Games being held at Quebec City in 1967. It was at these Winter Games that amateur sports in Canada reached an historic milestone of truly national proportions. More than athletes from every province and both territories were on hand to participate. If, as stated, the aim of the Games is enthusiasm and understanding, the name of the game is par- ticipation. In fact, the concept of the Canada Games places more importance upon par- ticipation than upon the calibre of competition and the whining of laurels. It is better to have participants from every province and territory in a particular event than to have only a few highly accomplished competitors. It is hoped, of course, that the Canada Games may eventually prove a fertile source of young athletes to represent Canada in the international arena and that it will give them training in the en- vironment of large scale competition. But these are ancillary benefits arising from the broader purpose of providing thousands of young Canadians of vary- ing levels of athletic ability with opportunities to par- ticipate in Olympic like games.
