The 65-year old league celebrated the accomplishments and looked forward to avenging the tough season they faced.

Special guest speaker Tyrell Sutton of the Montreal Alouettes was eloquent as the talked about facing a failed season with resilience. He spoke from experience as his team had a rough year as well.

« We were 3 and 15 last year. The road to success is paved with failure, in school and on the field, but you stay strong and build mental toughness. Do that extra lap, that extra math problem. Set the bar higher and reach for it, » he said.

In support, the families were joined by local politicians, including Mayor of Saint-Laurent, Alan DeSousa, Councilors Jacques Cohen, Aref Salem and Francesco Miele.
