Induct Scotty Olson in the Boxing Canada hall of fame.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


I wish to inform all possible supporters that before I spoke to Scotty about creating a petition for his achievements in the sport he didn’t wish to participate because he didn’t wish to come off as being entitled. That being taken into account I represent a community in his municipality and sport that feel that he deserves recognition for his positive contributions to the sport and his local community over his lifetime and are acting upon it ourselves. We do recognize that Boxing Canada have many that they are working on being inducted currently but wish to bring to their attention that there’s a large community wishing to see Mr. Olson recognition from you for his lifetime commitment to the sport. Here we will outline his career achievements . Thank you.
