One of the most profound moments of the Winter Games will undoubtedly be the pomp and circumstance at the beginning. Everyone loves to see the teams as they are introduced as the proud representatives of their respective countries.
This time around the organizers promise it will be epic, with rumors of holographic figures running around the stadium, to massive projectors using the audience as a screen—it should be spectacular.
The big question is of course, who will bear the torch to its final position in BC Place Stadium? Well, there have been talks of hockey great Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, and Gordie Howe, but today reports stated that Betty Fox might be given the privilege.
Either way, organizers are being careful not to reveal too much, but we already learned this week that Canadian superstars Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, and Sarah McLachlan would help kick things off with special performances.

“The Government of Canada is a proud supporter of the 2010 Winter Games. We, and all Canadians, look forward to a memorable Opening Ceremony that will allow the world to see the best that Canada has to offer.”
