“Town of Caledon Council and staff are honoured to recognize this world-class athlete,” said Acting Mayor Nick deBoer. “Brittany’s achievements are outstanding and show a high level of commitment to her sport. Caledon is proud to support Brittany and her team mates on this exciting journey.”

Town Council and Staff signed the Town flag and presented it to Brittany’s parents, Fred and Christine Webster, at a celebration at Town Hall on Tuesday, January 28.

Members of the public are encouraged to drop by and sign notes of encouragement to Brittany as she sets out to represent Canada at the 2014 Olympic Games.
