The Governor General conducted the coin toss to officially kick off the championship game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Calgary Stampeders.
Earlier this week, Her Excellency and CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie welcomed the Grey Cup at Rideau Hall for public viewing as part of the festivities planned around the championship game. The Grey Cup game is presented in Canada’s capital this year on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Confederation. In October 2012, the trophy was also on display at Rideau Hall to mark the centennial of the Grey Cup Championship Game.
