59th CANUSA Games

The fun and friendly athletic competition between Flint, Michigan and Hamilton, Ontario, now in its 59th year, settled back in Hamilton for the second consecutive year. One of the longest running events of its kind, it gives kids a chance to learn about another city and country, and make friends while enjoying sports. A winning recipe, I’d say. – Barry Gray
