Local residents chosen to carry Canada Games torch.

Residents from Fort St. James will represent the north during the torch relay from Victoria to Prince George.

The 2015 Canada games may still be 113 days away but the Canada games torch has already been lit and made its way to Victoria, B.C. and as the torch makes its way to Prince George, as  few Fort St. James locals will be helping it along its way,

Alexandra Luggi and Leon Erikson were both chosen to take part in the torch relay throughout British Columbia with the two northerners participating in the Quesnel, B.C. portion of the relay.

The British Columbia leg of the torch relay begins in Victoria and makes it’s way north towards Prince George with residents from communities throughout the north including Fort St. James, Vanderhoof and Fort St. John among others.

The 2015 Canada games will mark the first time in the history of British Columbia that the province has hosted the winter edition of the games.
