So Nice. Roots Canada Supplying
Footwear to 'Stronger, Freer'


Roots "Trans Canada Joggers" (Africa colour)

The Stronger, Freer Project is pleased to announce that Roots Canada is suppyling their beautiful Trans Canada Joggers for use in the last act of 'Stronger, Freer' a play written specifically for Canada 150 to be produced in Stouffville on June 15, 17, and 18.

Courage. The Roots 'Celebrating 150 Years of being Nice' Video

"We wanted to reach out to Canadian companies to see who would respond and Roots was not only responsive to our needs, but they supplied the product, in the right size, in a matter of days", said Patrick Lannigan, board member of the Stouffville Theatre Company, and co-author of the play. "They really cared, at a senior level. That was awesome."

"It's so great to work with a Canadian company that sweats the details", added Lannigan, "and Roots is certainly one of those companies. You only have to look at their 'Celebrating 150 Years of Being Nice' video to see the courage and conviction they have in what they do."
