Rumours swirled all day in South Van about Trevor Linden carrying the torch. It was hard to believe. Why would he be carrying the torch on Main Street? Nevertheless, fans came out in full force for the opportunity to see Linden, even wearing jerseys. At about 3:55pm between at 43rd Ave we saw him. Fans mobbed security to get a quick pic with the local hero. Even as he was in the bus trailing along, Linden chants roared and fans slammed the windows with their hands.
Hundreds of fans came out, and Little India did its job representing. Then I got too tired running when I reached Langara… All in all, the event was exhilarating. I recommend that if you haven’t seen the torch relay yet, to check it out with your last chance tonight and tomorrow.
