Brock's wrestling team to highlight women in sport

The women's wrestling team at Brock was the backdrop to highlight measures from the 2018 Federal Budget that promote women and girls participation in sport. 

Joel Lightbound, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, alongside MP's Vance Badawey and Chris Bittle on hand for today's meeting.

The Liberal government wants to see gender equality in Canadian sports, an earmarked $30 million dollars over three years to the vision in last month's budget.

The government hopes to get the ball rolling on research to figure out why fewer women and girls take part in sports than do men and boys.
