Some Runners Have To Pay to Keep their Olympic Torch

A local woman is upset that some of the runners who carried the Torch in the Saint John area this week had to pay to keep it.

Rachel Cook tells CHSJ News her 14-year-old son Antoine had to pay almost $500 for his torch.
Cook adds she thinks it was fair and unfair and it shouldn't have been so expensive.
Cooks thinks it's a bit unfair when the runners for companies were given their torches as keepsakes while some school kids had to come up with the cash to keep it.
