Celebrating Canadian Paralympians with Rick Mercer

I’m always inspired by the Paralympics, and Rick Mercer has done a great job this year profiling some of Canada’s top athletes. Interesting fact – the use of the prefix ‘para’ in paralympics actually means ‘beside’ or ‘alongside’ rather than referring to paraplegia. The Paralympic games include athletes with a wide range of abilities, and include individuals living with spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, amputations, visual impairments … and many more.

Check out these videos from Rick Mercer (CBC) to see some of our Canadian Paralympians in the lead up to this year’s competition!
