Successful Stop by Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour : Spotlight on Châteauguay Across the Country

It is mission accomplished for the Ville de Châteauguay as a Hometown Hockey Tour host community: the Rogers Hometown Hockey show, filmed at the Agora on Sunday, February 2 and broadcast live on Sportsnet across Canada, showed superb images of our attractions and community, while presenting capsules and interviews with great Châteauguay athletes. For one weekend, Châteauguay proudly carried the torch of the national hockey capital.

Through the scenes shot at the Multisport Centre and the enchanting backdrops of old Châteauguay and île Saint-Bernard, thousands of Canadians were able to discover the charms of our city and share our passion for hockey. The introduction of the show, featuring Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender, and the interview by Ron MacLean and Tara Slone with female hockey star Kim St-Pierre, were among the high points of the show before the game pitting the Montreal Canadiens against the Columbus Blue Jackets. These segments are available on our Facebook page.

During a thank-you ceremony at the Ville de Châteauguay, acting mayor Mike Gendron took advantage of the platform to highlight the work of organizations, such as the Grenadiers de Châteauguay, the Blazers of H.S. Billings high school and Hockey mineur de Châteauguay (represented by the Cavaliers and Cougars teams), which have shaped our community’s sports culture. On behalf of the City, he also accepted a framed jersey bearing the Hometown Hockey logo, autographed by Ron MacLean and Tara Slone.

Major financial assistance granted to local organizations

In addition to the immense visibility afforded to Châteauguay, local organizations and associations received major financial support to continue their missions. L’Élan des jeunes, which provides shelter for homeless young people from ages 16 to 22, received a cheque for $5,000 from Rogers. In addition, Hockey mineur de Châteauguay received a cheque for $7,500 for its excellent results in the Scotia Bank puck shooting challenge.

On behalf of the residents and organizations that benefited from the Hometown Hockey Tour’s stop, Châteauguay would like to thank Rogers for holding this amazing event.
