The torch for the 2010 Winter Olympics, to be held in Vancouver, arrived in Canada today via plane, the AP reports. The torch was lit in its ancestral site in Greece by the sun's rays, and it traveled overseas in a miner's lantern. Twelve thousand people will carry the torch about 28,000 miles throughout Canada before the official start of the games.
