Victoria MNP Torch Relay Stop
We invite you to join us in front of the BC Legislature as we welcome the MNP Canada Games Torch for its first of eight stops in B.C. Come cheer on our local torchbearers, athletes and volunteers at the official torch ceremony and community celebration taking place outside the BC Legislature on November 21 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay will start at Clover Point shortly after 11 a.m. and is expected to arrive at the BC Legislature between 11:45 and 12:00 p.m.
Immediately following the Torch’s arrival, we will host an official torch ceremony with speeches from local dignitaries, followed by a community celebration featuring free coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and giveaways, as well as a chance to meet the torchbearers, local Olympic and Paralympic athletes -- including Ryan Cochrane, Simon Whitfield and Michelle Stilwell - and the Canada Games mascot, Waskasoo.
As a celebration of amateur sport, we will also be joined by several local sports organizations including Kidsport Victoria, the Centre for Sport and Exercise Education, BC Hockey and the Victoria HarbourCats.
