NORTHERN EXPOSURE: Canadian skeleton racer Jon Montgomery, who will be featured in the "What It Takes" campaign, said, “It’s still a tough row to hoe for Canadian athletes when it comes to getting sponsorship dollars in the private sector -- even for the seven of us standing up here. It’s not an easy landscape to work within as far as private sponsorship in Canada, so it’s so rewarding when a deal like this comes together.” Meanwhile, the GLOBE & MAIL’s Rachel Brady notes the COC "has been active recently in landing new deals.” It announced a “new partnership with BMW Group Canada earlier this year, which will go through the next two Olympic Games” (GLOBE & MAIL, 6/26).
