It is now day 63 of the torch relay with only 43 more days until the games begin. Since I last posted, the torch has made its way through New Brunswick, Quebec, and southern Ontario. Yesterday, I had the fantasic opportunity to see it go through my town. There was a short parade with the Vancouver 2010 van and a couple of floats sponsored by RBC and Coke. The torch went by so quickly that it was hard to get some good pictures but I managed to snap a few and take a short video of it going by. Today, the torch will make its way through Northern Ontario with a celebration in Val d'Or starting at 6:00 p.m. Tomorrow, the torch will be in Timmins with Shania Twain lighting the cauldron. I can't wait to see that and would love to be there in person. Happy New Year!
Thank you to all of the Canadian Olympic athletes for making the Vancouver 2010 Olympics so memorable!
