Jean's brother Mike was a torch bearer today in Gatineau as part of the Olympic Torch run. It was minus 5 in beautiful sunshine and while the crowds were sparse along this part of the route, Mike said the final stretch before crossing over to Ottawa was lined with thousands of people.
We got to examine the torch at lunch afterwards. It's a beautiful design (well done Bombardier) with a very clever propane burner designed to stay lit while running.

Jean was absolutely beaming with pride during the whole ceremony and I know, for Mike, it was all very, very special.
