PEEL POLICE TEAMS REMAIN ONTARIO CHAMPIONS IN 2003

Arva, ON - Sept. 19, 2003

      "Unstoppable" is only way to describe the performance of the men and women of the Peel Regional Police from Mississauga during the 2003 tug-of-war season in Ontario. With a combination of excellent training, skilled coaching and a winning and determined attitude by all team members throughout the year, the Peel organization is to be congratulated for achieving the distinction of "2003 Ontario Champions" in both the Men's and Women's Catchweight divisions.
