(Toronto, November 10, 2017) On behalf of the Chiefs of Ontario, I congratulate the family of the late Gaylord Powless upon his induction yesterday into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame. Powless was arguably the best lacrosse player in the world when he played from the 1960s to 1980s. At the age of 17, he won the Tom Longboat Award as the best First Nation athlete in Canada. Powless also led numerous teams to amateur and professional championships during his career.
