A LOCAL provincial parks employee will be carrying the Olympic torch.
Ben Sabal, area supervisor for BC provincial parks, will run as a member of the World Wildlife Federation team along with several others picked from the northwest for being environmentally aware.
“I was excited about it and happy to participate,” he says.
He intends to run a couple weeks beforehand for his 300 metre torch run.
Sabal manages Lakelse Lake campground and 36 other provincial parks and protected areas around Terrace, Kitimat and out toward Hartley Bay and Princess Royal Island.
