This Facebook Live event will feature Spokesperson Sxwíxwtn, Wilson Williams moderating a VIP panel on the Indigenous-led process to explore a possible 2030 Games bid. This is a chance for Members to recall the legacy of Vancouver 2010 and explore what a 2030 Games could mean for reconciliation and the Nation moving forward.
On the VIP Panel we are pleased to have:

Clara Hughes, a speed skater and a cyclist, is the only athlete in history to win multiple medals at both the summer and winter Olympic Games. Her six career medals tie her as Canada’s most decorated Olympian.
