Olympic coverage presented by Sitka Law Group


Canada is about to make history in Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics, and Victoria Buzz has you covered for the whole journey. Over the next month, we will be providing updates, previews, and plenty of in-depth coverage!

On Thursday, February 8th, at the opening ceremonies, Team Canada will be led by the flag-bearers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, an ice-dancing pair from London, Ontario who won two silver medals at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games.

This year, Canada is sending the largest team they have ever sent to the Winter Games. Two hundred and twenty-five Canadian athletes will take South Korea by storm, hopefully winning plenty of medals along the way.

Hardcore Olympic fans will want to set their alarms extra-early on Thursday. The 2018 Pyeongchang Opening Ceremonies start at 3:00 am PST on February 9th and can be viewed on the CBC app, online, and on cable.
