Montreal: Kodak Canada has thrown its weight behind La Societe des jeux d’hiver de Quebec 2002, the organization promoting Quebec City’s candidature to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2002.

Kodak, the official photographer for the Olympics in Montreal in 1976 and Calgary in 1988, is also an active sponsor of TOP, The Olympic Program, and the Canadian Olympics Association.

Rene Paquet, president of Quebec 2002, says Kodak’s sponsorship brings established multinational experience to the table as well as financial support.

Other sponsors supporting Quebec 2002 are Banque Nationale, Royal Bank, Ameublements Tanguay in Quebec City and Raymond, Chabot Martin Pare, the chartered accounting firm.

The International Olympic Committe will announce the site of the 2002 games at a special meeting on June 16, 1995. LRB
