Former Montreal Canadiens Head Coach, Stanley Cup winner, and latest Team Cornwall honourary Team Captain: Senator Jacques Demers

Team Cornwall is proud to announce our newest Honourary Team Captain: Former Montreal Canadiens Head Coach, Stanley Cup winner, and current Senator, Jacques Demers.

Senator Demers will be the guest speaker at the annual Fall breakfast on Saturday, November 17th at the Agora Centre (301 McConnell Ave., formerly Nativity Hall) in Cornwall.

“We are very excited about having Jacques visit Cornwall,” said MP Guy Lauzon. “He has an amazing story to tell and we’re expecting lots of local sports fans to join us.”

“This won’t be a partisan speech, but an opportunity to hear about Senator Demers and his success story,” said Association President Eric Duncan. “Anyone who’s a hockey fan, and wants to hear a great motivational speaker should attend.”

Tickets for the event are only $10 each and are available by calling Jane Cox at (613) 543-3567. Breakfast is served at 8:30am and the event is wrapped up by 10:00am.

We encourage all of our Team Cornwall members as well as members of the public to join us in welcoming Senator Demers and in attending this exciting event.
