Our Olympic moment

With one day to go, Burnaby will get its Olympic moment.

Instead of hosting the world for two weeks at the Speed Skating Oval on Burnaby Mountain, Burnaby will get two hours with the Olympic flame. The torch will be run for three stages across Burnaby Thursday morning.

As the torch relay descends into Gordon Campbell's personal photo op, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan must be smiling at the decision to cut the International Olympic Committee out of Burnaby. On the other hand, Burnaby has also passed up a one time opportunity to shine in front of a worldwide audience of a billion or more people.

Let's enjoy our moment in the spotlight, cause like a flame it will go out too quickly.
