Just before 7:00 pm local time on Saturday, October 31 the Olympic Torch was passed from one proud Torch bearer to the next at the Nanaimo Pavilion off Jingle Pot Road. Close to 70 spectators were on hand to witness the event under a full Hallowe’en moon.
Trans Canada Trail representative Tim Hoskin, National Director of Trail, welcomed the many Trans Canada Trail supporters. He presented a plaque to RBC Nanaimo Branch Manager Anne Kuzminski in commemoration of RBC Foundation’s support of the Trail Olympic Torch Legacy activities. The Olympic Torch Relay will pass Trans Canada Trail pavilions in Whitehorse on November 3 and Yellowknife on November 5.
