Go Team Canada

The 40th World Skills Competition in Calgary, Alberta, showcases the best young talent from around the world in the trades, technologies and service industries.

From September 1 to 7, 2009, 900 participants representing more than 50 countries/regions will compete in 45 skilled trades and technology categories ranging from welding to cooking, auto body repair to landscape gardening, and plumbing to Web design.

Team Canada's 38 members will be competing in 35 contest areas.

And, from Mike Holmes,

I'm proud of these young people, and their passion and commitment to 'make it right.' I look forward to seeing how well they all do in the World Skills Competition this year."

I'm proud of Calgary for hosting this event. I also think our Government is doing the right thing by giving a $,2,000 grant to students who successfully complete their apprenticeship training and become certified journey persons in a designated Red Seal trade.

I wonder if Home and Property Inspection will ever be a Red Seal trade? Should it be?
