The next challenge will take the Torch on a raft down Firth River in Nahanni National Park . The torch will meet up with the Artists in the Park program at Sheep Mountain.

“The Torch Relay program is a really exciting way to lead up to the Games,” explain Piers McDonald, President 2007 Canada Winter Games Host Society. “We are happy to be able to bring an element of the Games to every community in the North. It’s a great way of spread the excitement of this amazing event.”

The Relay program consists of three torches, one in each territory, traveling to all 83 communities in the north.
