Statement by Minister St-Onge on Canada’s first medal at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games

It’s our first medal at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games! I join every Canadian today and offer my congratulations to Mollie Jepsen who has won a gold medal in Para alpine skiing (women’s standing downhill) last night.

This medal represents her fifth career Paralympic medal.

Courage, determination and inspiration—Mollie Jepsen truly embodies the Paralympic values and we couldn’t be more proud!

I wish Team Canada continued success at the Games. The entire country is cheering you on.

Go Canada Go!
