Just a note to say congratulations to Annie and Sergio from CMBC, who have carried the Olympic flame in the torch relay so far!

Sergio, a 25-year depot coordinator at Port Coquitlam Transit Centre, carried the Olympic flame on the streets of Aldergrove, in front of thousands of people. He won his spot through a TransLink internal contest. Many of the folks from CMBC came out to cheer him on!

And Annie, a six-year Community Shuttle operator, held the torch in front of more than 20,000 people at Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford. She entered a Royal Bank contest to win her spot in the relay. “It was an uplifting experience for all of us, seeing how involved everyone was. I’ll be dreaming about it for weeks,” said Annie.

Stay tuned: we have one more torchbearer in the relay this week!
