Vancouver 2010 Winter Games Torch Relay Will Make Eight Stops In Saskatchewan

During its long journey preceding the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, the Torch will make its way from B.C., to the east coast of Canada and back again. Along the way, nearly 200 communities across Canada will have the opportunity to gather and participate in Torch Relay community celebrations. 

Many of these towns are holding special events and celebrations, and inviting friends, relatives and neighbours from surrounding communities so that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy this unique experience.  

La Ronge was the first Saskatchewan community to welcome the Torch on November 7, 2009, while it made its way east. During its trip back to Vancouver, the Torch will pass through 38 Saskatchewan communities, but will only make stops in:

Yorkton – January 9, 2010 (Daytime celebrations)
Regina – January 9 & 10, 2010 (Evening celebrations)
Moose Jaw – January 10, 2010 (Daytime celebrations)
Swift Current – January 10, 2010 (Evening celebrations)
Saskatoon – January 11, 2010 (Daytime celebrations)
Prince Albert – January 11, 2010 (Evening celebrations)
North Battleford – January 12, 2010 (Daytime celebrations)
Lloydminster – January 12, 2010 (Evening celebrations)

The Vancouver 2010 website offers an interactive map documenting the relay, as well as information about the communities that will host the torch in January. For more information on the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games Torch Relay, visit www.vancouver2010.com
