Eight months ago I heard a radio advertisement saying that Coca-cola was running a contest where Canadians could be selected to run with the Olympic Torch. I completed the basic application and was required to write an essay on how I live a green and sustainable lifestyle that aligns with the core values of Coca-cola and the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Working for a company like Icebreaker provided a portion of my essay but the real content of my essay came down to my everyday practices such as living in a high density, geo-thermal building, using a car share program, taking public transit, a being a board member for an alternative transportation organization. I submitted my essay in mid-August and by October I received the amazing news that I was selected to be a Torch Bearer in Oliver, a small town in interior British Columbia. read more »

Montreal might be on the other side of the country, but we’re very excited about the Vancouver Olympics! read more »
