Lighting the Cauldron

Here we are! This is it, day 106, the final day of the longest ever domestic torch relay in Olympic history! Who do you think will be doing the final leg of the torch relay, and lighting the cauldron today? Can you believe it? TODAY!

There's been tons of speculations about who will be the final torch bearer. People are thinking Wayne Gretzky, Betty Fox, Nancy Greene-Raine, Karen Magnussen, Cindy Klassen and Michael J. Fox.

But those aren't the only options, what about an average citizen? Robyn Perry was a 12-year-old schoolgirl and figure skater who lit the flame in Calgary in 1988, and she wasn't famous. And in Montreal it was Stephane Prefontaine and Sandra Henderson, two everyday teenagers. So it could be anyone.

The favourites of course are Betty Fox and Wayne Gretzky, but who do you think would be the best suited Canadian to light the cauldron?
