AMI-audio celebrates White Cane Week

Founded by The Canadian Council of The Blind (CCB), White Cane Week’s mandate is to raise public awareness of the challenges facing Canadians living with vision loss. From February 5 to 9, there will be events in communities across Canada focused on demonstrating the abilities – not disabilities – of people living with vision loss. One of these exciting events is the 2018 AMI Canadian Vision Impaired Curling Championship and I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be hosting an AMI-audio live broadcast from this event all week! 

From February 5 to 9, seven teams from six Canadian cities will travel to Ottawa to compete at the historic Ottawa Curling Club, including Team Kelowna who will return as Team Canada to defend their title. 

Curlers from a past tournament are on the ice. Several athletes look on as a woman uses a broom to propel a rock forward.

I’m no professional athlete but I’ve been lucky enough to cover the Bonspiel since 2013. I’ve also spent a few years at ice level covering individual games and can truly say that nothing beats being that up-close and personal! This year, I look forward to sharing that amazing experience with you during our live broadcast as we interview team players, coaches, organizers, volunteers and the enthusiastic fans! 

Listen to AMI-audio Live from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern on AMI-audio to catch all the action. 

Find the AMI-audio channel with your television service provider or stream the program live at AMI.ca/ListenLive. If you miss the broadcast, download the AMI-audio Live Podcast
