The Olympic Torch made an appearance around the HUB the week of November 23, 2009. Spirits were high as business signs around the city welcomed the torch. Many locals took part in the festivities ranging from pancake breakfasts, to parades. Moncton was represented well by a range of locals from all walks of life. It was a great experience for Greater Moncton and whether we were able to personally witness the torch relay or not, a big piece of our hearts felt proud to be Canadian.
