VANCOUVER, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ - Famous for portraying exciting historic and literary figures in his routines, iconic French figure skater Philippe Candeloro was in Saskatchewan to soak in a little history and culture, and a lot of Olympic Spirit, Canadian-style!

Package also includes footage of the flame as it passed through Manitoba and Saskatchewan, including an aboriginal honour guard on horse back from the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, and scenic shots of Saskatchewan's scenic skies both day and night.
