March 13, 2016 – LiberTerre is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the 2016 Clarkson Cup, which was held this past weekend at The Canadian Tire Centre (home to the Ottawa Senators) in Kanata, Ontario. After an intense battle, Calgary Inferno came out victorious against the talented Les Canadiennes de Montreal.
LiberTerre is a proud Canadian company that is committed to supporting talented Canadian athletes in all of their endeavours. Our company Chairman, Kevin Reed was recently appointed the Chairman of The Clarkson Cup and was responsible for organizing the weekend’s festivities.
Since 2006, The Clarkson Cup has been regarded as The Stanley Cup of women’s hockey and is awarded annually to the champion of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). In 2005, Canada’s then Governor General Adrienne Clarkson suggested that since the Stanley Cup wouldn’t be awarded that year (due to the infamous NHL lockout), it should instead go to the top women’s hockey team. Ultimately it was decided women needed a cup of their own, and so the Clarkson Cup was born. Since 2009, it’s been awarded to the winner of the CWHL.
Congratulations to the Calgary Inferno – your handwork and resiliency has truly paid off!
