Heading in to the 2014 Nova Scotia’s women’s playdowns, Heather Smith had already worn the provincial colours four times at the Canadian women’s curling championship.
The 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be hosted by Montreal for the first time in the 32-year history of the event, Feb. 1-9 at the Maurice Richard Arena. The Canadian women’s curling championship was contested in the city once before, in 1979, prior to taking on the Scotties title.
After 13 draws at the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Manitoba (7-0), Ontario (6-1), Canada (6-2) and Saskatchewan (5-3) hold the top four spots in the round robin standings. But the rest of the field – including New Brunswick and PEI (both sitting at 4-4) and B.C. (4-3) – is working its way up from below, and Thursday afternoon’s games provided an opportunity to keep the leaders in sight.
