2010 torch relay route announced

The torch relay route for the 2010 Winter Olympics was announced on Friday.

The torch’s journey will begin in Victoria, and travel to 266 communities in BC, and more than 1000 across Canada.

There will be no international relay leg, only Canadian communities as far reaching as St. John’s, NFLD, and Alert, Nunavut.

By the end of the 106-day relay, the torch will have travelled 45,000 kilometres by land, sea and air, and come within an hour’s drive of 90 per cent of the Canadian population.

And yes, the torch will visit Northern BC, including stops in Prince George, Fort Nelson, Dawson Creek, and Fort St. John.
