Vote for Terrace to host 2015 Canada Winter Games torch celebration

One community in each B.C. region, Northwest, Northeast and Central Interior, will win the chance to host a celebration for the torch relay

Terrace has the chance to host one of the 2015 Canada Winter Games Regional Community Torch Celebrations if the city gets enough votes during the three-week voting period now open online.

The community torch celebration is part of the 2015 Canada Winter Games Torch Relay and one community in each region of Northwest, Northeast and Central Interior will get to host a celebration.

Terrace is a northwest finalist along with New Hazelton.

“This is a great opportunity for Terrace to bring together locals and showcase our community to a much larger audience than what we normally would have access to,” says Tyler Clarke, tourism manager for Kermodei Tourism.

Clarke organized a committee and asked the city for support to enter its bid in the torch relay celebration earlier this summer.

Terrace is now shortlisted and online voting starts today, August 27, and continues until September 12.

Visit www.canadagames2015.ca to learn more about the communities and to vote for a deserving community in one or all three regions.

The three successful communities will be announced on September 24, 2014 at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Convention.
