The Ontario Honda Dealers Association has signed an agreement with KV Racing Technology to sponsor Paul Tracy at the Honda Indy Toronto auto race, which will take place on July 12. The sponsorship also includes support for WoundedWarriors.ca, a not-for-profit organization that raises funds for Canadian soldiers wounded overseas. "To have the Indy return to Toronto, sponsored by Honda, and not have Paul Tracy racing didn't make sense to us, so we decided to sponsor Paul," said Brian Tafler of the association. "When someone brought up the idea of supporting our Canadian troops, the decision to do that was both immediate and unanimous. We wanted to help those in need of numerous forms of assistance. That's why we decided to join with WoundedWarriors.ca to help bring awareness to their cause and to help raise funds for them during the Honda Indy Toronto race weekend."
The Canadian Internet Registration Authority has signed-on as a sponsor of the Media Awareness Network, a not-for-profit media literacy organization. "As the Internet becomes more integrated in our daily lives, it is now more important than ever to ensure young people are equipped to make safe decisions when using the Internet," said Byron Holland, president and CEO of the authority. "The Media Awareness Network provides an important and necessary service to educators and parents and as the steward of Canada's domain and Internet space, CIRA is proud to be a sponsor of MNet's vital programs."
