Petro Kin: Set to Report from Vancouver 2010 and Other Olympic TidBits

Granville street, downtown Vancouver (it's where all the bars are)

It's a Random Happenings kind of column here today...

This is a great article introducing the three sets of families chosen to travel to Vancouver for  interviews with Canadian athletes and their families during the first week of the Winter Olympics. Let's hope they get some scoops before the regular media does!
Petro Canada Family Correspondents webpage

Petro Canada's Athlete's Program is responsible for putting family members of our athletes in the stands when their loved ones are competing at the games. It was only fitting that their correspondent contest was a search for family members.
