Message From the Governor General of Canada on the Occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Quebec Winter Carnival

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- I am delighted to extend warm greetings on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Quebec Winter Carnival, which opens today and runs through February 16, 2014. I would also like to express my admiration for an organization that works so hard to bring such enjoyment to Carnival-goers from across Canada and around the world.

Year after year, it is wonderful to see how this homegrown Quebec institution attracts enthusiastic crowds who brave the cold, inspired by a festive spirit unique to Canada. Over time, the Quebec Winter Carnival has become a must-see attraction, boosting Quebec's well-earned reputation for hospitality and showcasing its beautifully decorated cityscape.

I congratulate the organizers on a job well done, in presenting shows and activities for all tastes and once again making the Quebec Winter Carnival a world-class tourist destination.

Happy Carnival!
