Northern Canada will be showcased during the torch relay. A ceremony on Parliament Hill in Ottawa officially launched the 2007 Canada Winter Games Torch Relay on Friday. The NWT Torch will begin its journey at Pauluktuk in the Beaufort Delta Region this Thursday. Director of Sport and Recreation of Youth Ian Legary says they hope to have the torch hit all 33 communities during its travels. He adds the city will be made aware when the torch is expected to come through Yellowknife. The relay will honor and celebrate all forms of northern transportation, such as kayaking, to coast guard ships, and moccasin clad feet.
