TORONTO – Canadians got a glimpse of what the country’s Olympians and Paralympians will be wearing at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Sochi Winter Games Wednesday afternoon.
Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and the Canadian Olympic team unveiled the official uniforms in Toronto.
Dimitri Soudas, executive director of the Canadian Olympic Committee, tweeted that all HBC clothing worn by the country’s Olympians is made in Canada.

This follows criticism of HBC’s 2008 uniforms, which were mostly made in China.
In 2010, Team Canada’s logo came under political fire for resembling the Conservative Party logo.
HBC provided Team Canada’s uniforms for the Torino, Beijing, Vancouver and London Olympic Games.
Wednesday’s unveiling took place 100 days before the start of the Winter Games.
Earlier this month Team Canada and Nike unveiled the official 2014 Olympic hockey jerseys.
