wrote Sylvie Béliveau in 1995, “she was selected for her outstanding speed... she was able to follow a player like Mia Hamm who has tremendous speed. Suzanne’s defending skills were good having played basketball, she found many similarities and was able to do a great job”...

said Muir in 2021, “I am a proud Maritimer and I played from youth to adulthood on the fields in Nova Scotia. We weren’t just a team, we were and we remain a family that grew up together. Our coach John Kehoe and his wife Donna, they invested their hearts and time into us, shaping us not only as individuals, but as a team”... said Muir in 2021, “I would like to hope that the strengths that I brought were being a team player and supporting others and really trying to set goals and work towards achieving them and doing it together”... said Muir in 2021, “to wear your country’s jersey and hear your country’s anthem is an absolute privilege. You think of representing your country, the life gifts that it gives you that, when you are playing you don’t even necessarily realise them at the time, but without question it was an absolute honour and one for which I am very grateful and very thankful”... said Muir in 2021, “wearing the Canadian jersey for the first time and later winning the 1998 Concacaf Women’s Championship in front of a home crowd of nearly 5,000 people in Toronto was such a highlight for me. To this day, I can still hear my teammates, the roar of the crowd and the sound of my young nephew and my sister’s voices encouraging us all on through exhaustion to a 1:0 victory over Mexico. It will always form one of my greatest soccer memories”...

CANADA SOCCER HALL of FAME:

I am incredibly honoured to be inducted alongside the Class of 2021 and to join other esteemed Honoured Members in the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame.

It is a privilege to represent your country and along this path there are so many people and memories that shape that journey.

To my coaches and support staff, who gave so selflessly, I hope you always know the difference you made in growing me as a player and person. To my teammates, I am so grateful for the friendships, experiences and life-lasting memories shared.
