The Olympic torch has arrived in Mississauga.
The flame hit town on day 51 of its cross-country journey. Mississauga student Stephen Covic accepted the torch at the Etobicoke border this morning and carried it into Mississauga.
The relay then proceeded westbound along Burnamthorpe Rd. E. toward the Civic Centre.
Mayor Hazel McCallion drew massive applause when she carried the torch for about 400 metres during the morning relay.
A celebration at City Hall featured Aboriginal dancers, Francophone performers and various other singers and several special artists.
All the torch bearers will carry the flame a distance of 300 metres. They will wear a white Olympic uniform and red mittens.
Meanwhile, a convoy of vehicles followed the torch as it made its way through the city. Temporary road closures has ensured the safety of the torchbearers and the spectators lining the relay route.
The torch will leave the Civic Centre this afternoon to travel southbound along Hurontario St., Port Credit and Clarkson Village via Lakeshore Rd. W.
