SUMMERSIDE, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND - Prime Minister Stephen Harper today received the President's Award from the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO). The Prime Minister received this award, the highest honour granted by the association, for delivering on his commitment to expand Canada's network of national trails.

"I am honoured to receive this award from an organization that appreciates and understands the importance of conserving Canada's natural heritage so it can be enjoyed by future generations," said the Prime Minister. "Investing in Canada's national trails helps create jobs today. It also opens up new opportunities for tourism businesses and allows more Canadians to enjoy the Canadian countryside in a safe and responsible manner."

The Prime Minister announced on March 6, 2009 that, as part of Canada's Economic Action Plan, his government was investing $25 million to expand Canada's national trail system. The National Trails Coalition, of which the CCSO is a member, has pledged to match this investment.

"On behalf of the thousands of volunteers who make up our trails community, we are pleased to recognize the Prime Minister'’s exceptional leadership and support for recreational trails," said CCSO President Kevin Sweetland, upon presenting the Prime Minister with the award.
