Could they not find a Canadian that's lived here in the past 20 years to light the final one? What a disappointment that Terry Fox's Mom didn't get the opportunity to do it for Terry.

I got a chuckle out of how they missed the torch switch in the truck - they kept saying it must be a special one he had cause it stayed lit for more than 15 minutes.
