Ian Moss, President of Badminton Ontario, spoke about the strong showing that all the Ontario athletes have had over the week and on the finalist preparing to play in the finals. “These results are a testament to the high quality of club programming and coach support in Ontario, so I congratulate both the athletes, their coaches and club administrators on their achievements.  Of course, Badminton Ontario also salutes the role of the parents in this journey – thanks to their commitment to the development of young Ontarians through sport, we can all celebrate their achievements together.  Thank you also to the host organizing committee in Moncton – they have consistently presented a high level competition environment that has set the standard for others to emulate in the future”.
