Torch Travels
2007, February 23rd:
Dog sledding, snowshoeing, skijoring, running, skiing, snowmobiling, walking and running – the 2007 Canada Winter Games Torches have done it all in the past eleven months!

In the last few weeks school children, RCMP, mayors, sports teams and residents of communities including Cape Dorset (Nunavut) Wha Ti (NWT) and Dawson City (Yukon) have carried the three torches through Canada’s North on it’s way to Whitehorse (Yukon).

In Behchoko, the Northwest Territories Torch was welcomed by a traditional drumming performance and O Canada sung in Dogrib, an Aboriginal language indigenous to that area.

Official lighting of the Canada Games Torch will take place at the Opening Ceremony on February 23.
