Bragging rights in Canadian sports

Canadians aren't known for bragging about their accomplishments. But a conference organised by McGill University this week looks at how Canadians do handle their successes.

Lifting Off and Flying High: Talent and Success in Canada is the name of the event. It explores success in the arts, technology and sports fields.

Sonali Karnick will be moderating a panel discussion on Canada's success in sports on Tuesday.

The panel includes Ross Rebagliati, who was Canada's first Olympic gold medalist in men's snowboarding, and Danièle Sauvageau, who coached the first women's hockey team to win an Olympic gold medal. They spoke with Sonali Karnick before the conference.
