Here are a few images capturing the Olympic Flame moment. We will be updating this page with many more images and video clips of the day, as well as from the Parade of Lights!

Here is some of the media coverage of Cia’s Torchbearing experience for your reading and listening pleasure.

”It was a fun event. I entered a contest that over 1 million Canadians applied to - "RBC carry the torch". The common theme for people that were chosen was that we do quite a bit of volunteer work and create positive change in our communities! Quite an honour to have been chosen!”

2009 Holiday Parade of Lights.

Just three days after the Olympic Torch Relay came to Halifax on November 18th, RBC celebrated our local torchbearers with an Olympic Torch Relay-themed entry in the 14th Annual 2009 Holiday Parade of Lights.

On Saturday, November 21st, 2009 over 100,000 spectators gathered along the streets to enjoy the lights, music and live entertainment of the Parade, as it wound its way through Downtown Halifax.

Thank You for coming to the Parade and waving to Cia and her fellow Olympic Torchbearers, along with 2 RBC Olympians and the RBC Cheer Squad! Santa Claus was joined by over 50 festive floats, holiday carolers, majorettes and marching bands.

As a 2010 Olympic Torchbearer, our commitment will help build a lasting legacy for Halifax and create a better future for Canada .
