I propose the creation of a website to document and collect the experiences of Canadian Olympic athletes and other Canadians during the Olympic games. I feel that this is important to document as it is a great source of national pride for Canadians and will provide an interesting and relevant record of Canadians' experiences.
The website would have two major purposes. The first is to collect news articles and interviews relevant to Canada's role in the Olympics. These articles would be collected from major and alternative news media, as well as blogs written about first-hand experiences at the games. The second purpose is to collect Canadian's memories of the games. The site would contain a form that allows Canadians to enter in their own memories, whether this is their feelings about a particular event, congratulations for an athlete, their experience while attending an event in person, or a memory about a past Olympic games.
The site would be organised according to Olympic year and, most importantly, be on-going, allowing these memories to be collected for all subsequent Olympic games, while still storing the old ones.
