PP-Apr16Neil Young’s search for a heart of gold ended at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada. In just over two weeks, the True North stood strong, gaining more golds – 14 – than any other country in the history of the Winter Games. In addition to showing outstanding athletic talent, Canadians most notably showed their emblematic glowing hearts. Figure skater Joannie Rochette touched the world when she went on to win bronze shortly after the unexpected death of her mother. She is just one shining example of the sweeping strength that blanketed British Columbia’s winding roads and snowy peaks during the Games.
