The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau attended the Glengarry Highland Games today. He joins the list of Canadian Prime Ministers who have visited our grounds since the first Games in 1948. This includes The Rt. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King (1948), The Rt. Hon. John Diefenbaker (1957, 1975), The Rt. Hon. L.B. Pearson (1963), and The Rt. Hon. Jean Chretien (1998).
Games president Anne said it was wonderful to have our Prime Minister visit our games this afternoon, a year when we are celebrating our 70th anniversary and Canada's 150th. She added that it is the people who attend the Games, some attending for the first time this year and others here for their 70th visit, that have made it a world-class Celtic event.
