Video B-Roll available via CNW - Mary Carillo (NBC Sports) and local
aboriginal people guide the torch through Canada's North

VANCOUVER, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - The Olympic flame passed through Canada's North on a 10-day portion of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay. The flame was passed by NBC sportscaster and former tennis star Mary Carillo, carried on a ride on a chuckwagon, and even delayed due to a polar bear on the road. Visuals capture the Torch being carried through Canada's northernmost cities and communities.

Video package includes footage of Mary Carillo running with the flame in Iqaluit, Nunavut, the aurora borealis (northern lights), polar bears, a special ride for the flame on a chuckwagon, Inuit throat signing, and a montage of Canada's aboriginal torchbearers as the flame passed through northern communities in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut and Quebec.
