Canadian flag bearer 

The huge flag that the Canadian team carried around after their win on Sunday belonged to a superfan from Regina Dave Ash

β€œI was stunned. We'd just won the gold medal, and they used my flag as a symbol of what they'd won,” said the 55-year-old Regina tour operator. β€œIt was incredible.”
Thirty years ago Ash also invented the Rider's mascot, Gainer the Gopher.

Dave Ash did not invent Gainer. The original Gainer was Don Hewitt. Ash filled in a time or two and that's all. The current Gainer has been doing it for nearly 20 years.
