LETTER: Canadian gear made in China?

I would like to voice my concerns to the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Hudson Bay....

COC and The Bay

I would like to voice my concerns to the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Hudson Bay.

I was given a lovely Olympic scarf for Christmas.  Looking at it, I see it was made in China.  I did some research at my local Bay and see that everything has been made in China.

I find this absolutely unacceptable.  Our Canadian athletes deserve to be dressed in apparel made in Canada by Canadians who are the people supporting the athletes.

The 2010 Olympics, the Canadian Athletes again wore clothing made in China.

When will these people acknowledge that their decision making needs an overhaul and the Canadian Olympic Team representing Canada should be wearing made in Canada Uniforms.  Can they not recognize the fact that made in Canada would help the Canadian economy?

While I’m on the subject, I would like to ask how many of our other athletes’, such as hockey or soccer wear team informs made in locations other then Canada.

As a loyal supporter of our athletes’ I resent these uniforms being made anywhere else and I refuse to purchase or wear any of them and I encourage my friends to do likewise.
